I would like to draw your attention to 5 items this month.

Top of my list is a question – have you voted for your choice of Champion Beer Of Britain?  If not, why not?  It couldn't be easier and it is very important to our regional brewers.  I urge you to take advantage of your right to have a voice.

Secondly it is that time of year again when, as a branch, we start to look for our Pub Of The Year, Cider Pub Of The Year and Club Of The Year.  If you would like to nominate a pub which is in the current Good Beer Guide or a club, then please email Fiona [fiona.ndcamra@icloud.com].  Nomination time ends at the end of October.

Your nominations are also required for Good Beer Guide entries for 2018! Please email your nominations to Bob Goddard [r.goddard911@btinternet.com] Nominations need to be received by the end of November.

We have been invited to volunteer at Exeter Branch's Festival Of Winter Ales.  This event is open 11am-11pm on 13th and 14th January at Exeter City Football Club, St James Park.  There are lots of 'jobs' including bar work, entry, tokens etc.  If you are interested please contact Fiona for a staffing form and more details.


Finally we need suggestions for venues for our forthcoming meetings –

December 10th       January 14th      February 11th

If a pub near you has a room that can accommodate about a dozen members and serves good ale then let Branch Secretary, Chris Wells, know [vena1100@hotmail.co.uk  ]


I look forward to seeing you at a future meeting or event.

Regards and cheers
