Welcome to the website of the Bromley branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). Please bookmark this page and check back regularly for updates.
Our next event is a social at the Bull’s Head in Pratts Bottom on Saturday May 18th starting at 13.00. This is one of the few rural pubs we have in our borough, and I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t been there before (unless they dislike dogs).
An additional event has recently been added to the May diary. Lorraine Davies will be giving a cider talk at Penge Library on Thursday May 23rd starting at around 19.00. Some tasting samples should be available. Lorraine wrote the cider article in the member articles section of this site. Because of limited capacity in the library tickets are required but are free. They can be obtained in person from the library or by calling (020) 8778 8772.
The next committee meeting will take place on Tuesday May 28th at the Greyhound, Keston. Non-committee members are always welcome to attend committee meetings. All our events through to the end of July are now on our branch diary, which also contains more information about the events mentioned above.
Some other news. The Sovereign of the Seas in Petts Wood will be serving milds throughout this month to mark the fact that May is CAMRA’s national mild month. And The Chelsfield will be holding a Spring Beer Festival from May 24 to 26. Details are rather sketchy but if I get more information I’ll add it to the branch diary.
We have quite a large committee and roles often become vacant. At present there are several positions available so it’s a good chance for anyone who wishes to become involved to do so. If you are interested in volunteering for, or learning more about, any of the positions below, please either let me know so that your message can be forwarded to the chairman, or alternatively simply attend our next committee meeting (see above). The available positions are as follows:-
- Membership Secretary
- Social Secretary
- Representative for the BR7 postal area (mainly Chislehurst)
Additionally our Under-30’s representative is keen to share his role.
If you have any questions about forthcoming events, or anything else concerning the branch or this website let me know. Please also feel free to send in your comments on any pubs in the Borough of Bromley at any time. If you are not in CAMRA but would like to join, click here.
