Hull & East Yorkshire Branch

Welcome...

to the website of Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA! We are part of the Campaign for Real Ale, an organisaton of volunteers fighting for consumer rights within the pub-going sector. Our aims are to protect those consumer rights, to encourage the use of well run community pubs, and to promote the responsible enjoyment of quality real ale.

Locally we now have over 1100 members but we are always on the lookout for more people to help the campaign... and you could have a lot of fun whilst you're doing it! So if you enjoy real ale, good pubs and good company then why not join up? Visit the Main CAMRA Website where you can see the benefits for yourself.

What's Going On? Are you about to have a beer festival at your pub, or a meet the brewer night? Doing something out of the ordinary? Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA would love to hear about it, but we won't know if you don't tell us! Please get in touch if you're doing something special and we'll do our best to let our members know about it. We have a Twitter feed, a Facebook group and mailing lists which can all be used to advertise and promote your events so what are you waiting for?

Shout out and give us the news!

Chair Stewart Campbell Steps Down

In an open letter sent to all branch members on Wednesday 4th October Stewart said
'This letter is written with significant regret and has been six weeks in the drafting since I was on holiday in Scotland'.
'In recent weeks it has become clear that to me that due to my circumstances and less than perfect health I have to resign as branch chairman. I believe this action is in the best interests of the branch as well as myself.'
'I have been active in the branch since moving to Hull 15 years ago and in that time have held various committee positions and have campaigned for and championed real ale across Hull and East Yorkshire.'
' In recent months, since moving to Whitby, I have looked to get more involved at a regional level. Therefore, whilst it is a wrench to be leaving as chairman I will be continuing within the campaign'.

We would like to thank Stewart for the work he has put in on behalf of the Branch and wish him well for the future.

Our current Vice-Chair Angela Cawte will take on the role as chair until the AGM in March 2018. Angela, as those who are actively involved in the Branch will know, has the experience as being a previous Chair of the branch. We also wish her all the best in the coming months
