A Message from Scotland & Northern Ireland Director Stuart McMahon
Having recently taken over as the new Regional Director for Scotland and Northern Ireland Branches, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all our branches for the amazing work that they do in promoting the varied work of CAMRA – everything from supporting pubs and clubs, supporting and contributing to national/political policies and consultations, promoting live beer (which includes cask ales), real cider and perry, and running beer festivals…. the list could go on.
But that can only be done if the branches themselves have active volunteers – some of our branches are quite active, others are struggling for support. If you enjoy real ale, cider or perry, then please consider contacting your local branch – details can be found here: https://snib.camra.org.uk/about-us-2/branches/ – and join them for one of their social events. It’s a great way to meet some new like-minded friends, and you can help us achieve many of the aims of CAMRA.
CAMRA festivals are now resuming with Glasgow and Paisley having recently held successful events, and the Ayrshire (Troon) and Alloa Real Ale Festivals coming up in October and November respectively this year. Everyone’s welcome at them, but if you’re not a CAMRA member, then please consider joining the Campaign at them. That’s essentially how I got involved with CAMRA some 20 years ago, and have volunteered in numerous roles over the years.
