The Link Up group in Ripon is a self advocacy group helping people with learning disabilities become more confident in speaking out.
For the past four years it has met in the newly refurbished function room of the Golden Lion courtesy of landlords Vicky Stott and Steve Lynch.
The group which is funded by Ripon Community Link and supported by Talkback UK, gives people the opportunity to speak out about things that are important to them.
There are around 12 members of the group who said they enjoy having meetings at the Golden Lion as it is a great place to meet with friends, learn new things and have a pint of good beer.
