December 2021

As we put 2021 to rest, we can start to look forward to what 2022 has in store for Nuneaton & Bedworth CAMRA.

New Year, New Dawn?

As some might remember, as a thank-you to our neighbours in the Hinckley & Bosworth branch for the support they gave us when we held our first beer festival, we instigated an annual Sporting Challenge for the NH Trophy where the two branched compete against each other in a series of traditional pub games. Unfortunately, we were unable to agree a suitable date in 2019, and 2020 was a non-starter. However, we are pleased to announce that things are looking promising for the coming year.

Celebrate CAMRA’s 50th Anniversary

Nuneaton has a very close association with CAMRA as it was chosen as the location for the campaigns’ very first Annual General Meeting in 1972. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the event, representatives from branches across the West Midlands will converge on the Rose Inn on Saturday 26th March 2022 to reminisce over the the last half century of CAMRA’s campaigns.

Pub & Branch News

The Rose Inn has received a tasteful, long overdue, refurbishment with all the fixed seating being removed in favour of a more flexible table and chair arrangement.

NH Sporting Challenge (date to be confirmed) Following the recent Hinckley & Bosworth AGM, there is a possibility that the annual NH Sporting Challenge will make a return to the 2022 social calendar. Watch this space !!!
