We are well and truly into May now, so I thought it was time to let you have a quick update and tell you about some events we have planned.
1. Presentation to the County Cider Pub of the Year takes place next Saturday, 17th May. A minibus has been arranged by the County to take those interested in this event, down to the Railway Inn at Newnham on Severn, plus a few stops in the Forest area en route. Pick up time will be 11.20, but I am still negotiating the pick up point, but it could be near the Pelican. As we don’t have another trip out booked this month, this is a good opportunity to visit some differrent pubs, and certainly one for the cider fans.The cost will be £10 per head, but if we can get enough people, we may be able to drop the cost just a little.
If you would like to come along on this trip, which will include some of the Cirencester members, please let me know by Tuesday evening, as I have to confirm numbers. Email will be easiest but I am happy for phone calls – 07908699809 or 01452551400 where you will probably have to leave a message.
2. On Wednesday evening, 14th May we have our social meeting in the City, and we start at 8.00 pm at the Cafe Rene. After a short meeting we will head off to explore some other pubs in the area.
3. Monday 19th May is our Business meeting, whilst this is normally for the committee to meet, it is open for anyone to attend. 8.00 pm at the Pelican.
As we have a meeting on Wednesday, we can go through the news and updates then, and I will do a further email to update you all.
Please remember if you decide you do not want to receive the emails, then please let me know, but thank you to those who are happy to continue to do so.
Finally, May is Mild Month in the Camra campaign year. We know that both the Pelican and the Fountain are featuring Milds this month, but if you know of another pub please let me know, as we like to recognise pubs who support this event.
