About 25 people attended the meeting at The Flying Monk grounds on Monday night to show their support for cash-strapped Malmesbury Vics Football Club at its AGM.

The club welcomed 16 new volunteers, including two new treasurers and two local firemen to help with setting up events. 

Malmesbury Vics hosts its first beer festival this weekend with live music and food at the club grounds from 4pm on Friday until 11.30pm and again on Saturday and Sunday from noon.

There will be three marquees to be used in the event of bad weather.
