Following our recent Regional Meeting there were several issues that need a response from Branch members – yes that's you!  Not everyone can attend branch meetings so I thought I would pop them up on the website (having just learnt how to!).  If you want to respond please email me.

  • Our Regional Director would love to have a Regional Website.  Would anyone like to set it up and maintain it?
  • What would you include in a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis regarding CAMRA?
  • Issues that affect rural pubs are not being highlighted at a national level. 
  • CamRA has succeeded in that we can get decent beer in lots of pubs.  But there is a threat from breweries and pubcos seeking financial reward with no regard for production/distribution ethics especially in rural areas.
  • HQ would like to do a feature regarding ‘a local brewery tap’. They would like a write-up for Beer. Any nominations?
  • We would like to do another SW regional campaigning day/event (like Dawlish event).  Ideas required by end of July.
  •  Changes in the Drink driving law – what are the implications for our pubs?
  •  Should we have branch rules about pubs winning Pub Of The Year in consecutive years?
  • How do you feel about Affiliate CamRA membership e.g. university groups?                    

I know this seems like a lot of questions but any responses would be welcome.
