It’s been a busy week for the campaign with the Beer Tax Escalator debate hitting the house of Commons, and the Spring Beer Festival starting to take shape.
No rest for the wicked though, as this coming week sees both our November Branch Meeting (Wednesday 7th November) at the National Brewery Centre’s Academia room (ask at the Bar), and also our November Social on Friday November 9th!
For this month’s social on Friday we’ll be heading up to Derby (please make your own way using public transport), to do a bit of a walking tour of some of Derby’s best pubs. Don’t miss out on a great opportunity to find some gems. We’re meeting at the Alexandra (near to the station) around 7:30pm.
Hope to see you there!
A quick reminder of the second Beer Festival Planning Meeting to be held at the Old Cottage Tavern at 8pm on Tuesday 30th October.
Many of the committee positions have been filled, but there’s still lots to do. Hope to see you there!
The first meeting of the Committee to plan and discuss the 2013 Burton Beer Festival (the 34th!) is happening this week. Come along at 8pm on Tuesday 2nd October to the Burton Old Cottage.
Just a reminder of the upcoming October Branch Meeting on the 9th October. The meeting will be taking place at the Meynell Ingram Arms at Hoar Cross. The Committee meeting starts around 7:30pm with the main meeting proceeding at 8pm.
All CAMRA members are welcome to join the meeting, interested non-members are also welcome. Come along and meet the Branch!
November’s Branch meeting will be back in Burton Town, likely at the NBC Brewery Tap, conformation to follow.
HQ have recently announced Super Regional Conferences. There are six of these mega-meetings happening around the country this year, in London, Leeds, Birmingham, Altrincham, Bristol and Darlington and will happen from September to November this year. From the CAMRA website:
The purpose of these Conferences is to act as another channel of communications to enable members to understand more about how we work and the preparation of campaign planning, particularly to those who do not manage to get to the Members’ Weekend and AGM.
The meetings require registration so plan ahead if you want to attend. Our local meeting is at the Bartons Arms in Birmingham (144 High Street, Aston, Birmingham, B6 4UP) on Saturday the 29th September.
It’s worth noting that all of the meetings are open to all members, you don’t just have to go to the one in your region.
