Welcome to the North Surrey Branch of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale
Thank you for visiting our new website, which is very much a work in progress, Feel free to Contact Branch with any feedback or suggestions. Particular thanks to Andy Shaw & Alex Presland (Volunteer IT) and Alan Molloy (SWM Branch) for your advice and guidance.
Our Branch covers the Boroughs of Runnymede and Spelthorne, from Stanwell in the north to Woodham in the south. If you click on Local Pub Guide, it shows all the open real ale pubs we have listed, and gives an idea of geographic area.
Our campaigning priorities agreed at our AGM in January 2019 are:
To activate our membership and refresh our committee. Fancy collating pub information, or looking at pub protection, or just updating us on pubs you visit? Get in Contacts.
To support pubs and clubs and prevent further closures. We still have a number of Pubs Under Threat?, or have closed. Whilst nationally we have a plethora of micro-breweries brewing wonderful ales, we need pubs and clubs to sell them, and to be our community hubs. One of ways we promote pubs and clubs is through production of the Good Beer Guide and by annually selecting a Branch Pub & Club of the Year. Who got Awards in 2018, and who will it be this year?
To promote real ale and brewers, in particular by promoting pub and club Beer Festivals.We have an excellent local brewer (whose ales you must try) details on Beers & Brewing. If you hear of any beer festivals in our area or nearby, Contact Branch, we'd love to hear from you.
Support us AND enjoy yourself as well by getting involved in our Branch Meetings and Social activities, where all are welcome, contributing as much or as little as time allows. Remember, this is a hobby and supposed to be fun, see our Diary & What's On and come along.
