Recognition for Branch Stalwarts

Pubs Officers Awards

Pub officer Ray Buckler, ably assisted by Richard Simpson have been singled out for a CAMRA Special Award, recognising the outstanding work that they have carried out maintaining CAMRA’s Pub Database, over the past few years. With over 100 pubs in the branch, 2/3 of them selling real ale, it is an arduous task keeping in touch with them all and ensuring that the information held in WhatPub is up-to-date. Their tireless work has been greatly appreciated and their replacement(s) will have a hard act to follow.
