Hello Fellow Alers,

This is short email to introduce myself. I’m Chris. Hammond and I’m the membership secretary and one of the press officers at North Devon Camra. I hope to produce a regular feature to publicise events in our region. If you would like your EVENT or other information to be included please contact me on h.07796969257@gmail.com or through the North Devon Camra website.

Sat 11th June – North Devon Camra presentation of The Club of the Year to the Barnstaple Conservative Club, Boutport Street. The club are also holding an open day on the 11th and you are welcome to come and enjoy the day without being a member. There are events such as live music but please do not mention Boris!! The presentation will be at approximately 13.30hrs.

Sun 12th June – North Devon Camra presentation of Camra UK’s award to The Admiral Collingwood, Ilfracombe as their best new build pub in Britain.. The presentation will take place at approximately 13.30hrs. Also this week is the town’s Victorian Week so after the presentation why not take a stroll and enjoy. Also there is excellent music at The Pier Tavern.

Just a quick note on news of various pubs in the area.

  • George Hotel, Braunton. Well after a few strange years the pub and restaurant has been fully refurbished and promises to always have at least three real ales. Let’s hope they keep them well!!
  • The Ebberley, Barnstaple. The bar has been refurbished and is much more friendly. They tell me that the Sunday lunch is excellent.
  • Helebillys, Hele, nr. Ilfracombe. With the departure of Barbara and Simon the new hosts assure that things will get even better.

I hope that you have enjoyed this mail out and look forward to receiving on a regular basis. Good Aleing Chris. H.
