That's the unusual treat in store at a fledgling Reigate beer festival whose charitable purpose means you can feel genuinely good about yourself – for drinking. All money generated at Ale for Aid, to be held in the “perfect” setting of Reigate Caves, goes to good causes, thanks to sponsorship from local businesses. The Rotary Club of Redhill Redstone organised the first event in 2016 but it was not widely publicised and, tragically some may say, dozens of pints of beer were poured away at its end.
The A25 in Dorking remains closed, more than 12 hours after 400 litres of diesel spilled onto the carriageway. The road is closed in both directions between Pixham Lane and the junction with the A24 at Deepdene Roundabout. A fire crew from Dorking was called at about 10pm on Thursday night (February 15) after reports that an articulated lorry was leaking fuel on to the road.
A Merstham pub where two people were stabbed is “dangerous” and should remain closed for the time being, police have said. It has emerged two men were knifed in a mass brawl at The Railway Arms on January 20 - not one as police previously said. It was initially thought both may have life-threatening wounds. Officers believe two knives recovered from the scene were taken from a set in the pub kitchen.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
