Branch Meetings

Branch Meetings are held each month and for 2019 are to take place on a Thursday in the second half of the month. Branch Meetings are usually fairly informal (often these days comprising 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.

Committee Meetings

Committee Meetings are also held each month and for 2019 are to take place on a Monday in the first half of the month. Committee Meetings are more formal than Branch Meetings 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 2019. Meetings start at 8pm unless otherwise indicated, and all are open for any CAMRA member to attend.
