Branch Diary

Due to advice from the government concerning the control of the spread of Covid-19 and the avoidance of mass gatherings, and following an instruction from CAMRA HQ, all CAMRA Central Lancashire branch events planned after March 17th were cancelled.

From June 2020 monthly Committee Meetings (virtual meetings) have taken place.

Branch Meetings & Socials

Branch Meetings & Socials are held each month and for 2020 are to take place on a Thursday in the second half of the month. Branch Meetings & Socials are usually fairly informal (often these days there is just a social with no actual meeting). On occasions we may have a guest speaker, or we may go on to visit other pubs in the area.

The following Branch Meetings have so far been arranged for 2020. Meetings start at 8pm unless otherwise indicated, and all are open for anyone to attend.

Jan 30th : Branch Social & POTS Presentation - Beer Box, Bamber Bridge

Feb 20th : Branch Social & GLMT Presentation - Black Horse, Preston

Further Branch Meetings (including the Branch AGM) will be arranged as soon as this is possible.

Committee Meetings

Committee Meetings are also held each month and for 2020 are to take place on a Monday in the first half of the month. Committee Meetings are relatively formal events as we need to address CAMRA business. They are usually held in a private room or a part of the pub that is away from the regular customers.

The following Committee Meetings have so far been arranged for 2020. Meetings start at 8pm unless otherwise indicated, and all are open for any CAMRA member to attend.
