CAMRA Events & Socials

Here is our diary for the next month

The next branch meeting will be held at Wilson’s, Scarborough on Thursday 10th May at 7:30pm. Garry and Tina, formerly of The Hole in the Wall, have recently moved into Wilson’s (the renamed Leeds Hotel), and we are holding the branch meeting there to be supportive of their move and remind members of the pubs location.

The minutes of the April meeting should now be available on the website, (in the members section) in addition there is a mailout to branches from CAMRA HQ, which we have been asked to give feedback upon, concerning CAMRA’s suggested definition of a pub, if you cannot attend the meeting, and you want your feedback to be noted please email me comments before the branch meeting – 10th May or feedback directly to CAMRA, at the email address on the memo.

The June meeting will be held at the Sun Inn, Pickering on Sunday the 10th of June, starting at 12:45pm, to allow people to walk round from the bus stop and get settled. The meeting will be followed by a survey walk around some of the Pickering pubs.

The July meeting will be held on Thursday the 12th at 7:30pm. The venue is yet to be confirmed.

We are hoping to resume the survey trips by minibus in May, but definitely in June, July and August. I will inform you of the dates and routes nearer the time, and the costs.
