Well, this is it, my last monthly mailout!  I must admit to feeling rather sad.  Being Membership Secretary has been such a lovely role and I really  have enjoyed every minute of it.  But I am happy to be passing it on to someone else too.
I do hope that I will see you at our
 Branch AGM on 
Saturday 12th March 
11.00 (pub will open) for prompt start at 12.30
The Blue Lion, 
Lewdown EX20 4DL
There are a lot of great things to celebrate, not least the winners of 2016/17 Pub Of The Year, Cider Pub Of The Year, Club Of The Year and Brewery Of The Year.  We will also be introducing our South West Regional Campaigning Day.
I have had a request for bar staff volunteers from the SIBA beer festival at Tuckers Maltings on 14-16 April.  If you would like to volunteer for this, and in so doing earn the branch much needed income, then please Contact Chris, our Social Secretary
Finally I need to point out that for several of you I use a private email address which you have not supplied to CAMRA. I shall remove these from my contacts list following the AGM.  If this is the case you will no longer receive any email notifications from the new Branch Membership Secretary as I will not pass on your private information.  If you wish to be included in mailouts etc then you will need to provide CAMRA with your email address.
I shall be continuing as Branch Contact and Tasting Panel Leader so you will not get rid of me completely!
Cheers and many thanks for your friendship
