Branch meetings (see Branch Diary) are open to all members and are very friendly. They are normally held on the evening of the first Tuesday in every month. We hold them in the same location, (The Baum, Rochdale), as the venue seems to be fairly easy for most members of the Branch to get to. The meetings are held in the upstairs function/dining room at 7.30pm. The meetings are fairly well attended. Everybody is made welcome and we discuss various beery (& cidery) things including any latest news about pubs in the Branch area and any beer festivals either in the Branch or in the vicinity.
Simon, the landlord, usually provides a free supper at about 9.30pm when the meetings finish, plus he knocks off 40p per pint discount for card carrying CAMRA members. There are normally 7 real ales and a real cider on offer on the bar. A quick friendly meeting followed by a free supper and a few cheap(er) pints whilst having a craic. Can't be bad!
If you are a ROB Camra member and have supplied a current e mail address, you will normally receive the Branch newsletter "Camra Calling" by email a few days before the meeting, which will contain the latest news and agenda for discussion, as well as the previous meetings minutes.
You can also read "Camra Calling" and meeting minutes by signing in to the Members Area using your CAMRA membership number (less any 0's at the front) and your postcode as the password, no spaces. This site is case sensitive!
Please come along to one of the meetings, new attendees are always welcome.
The next Branch Meeting is on Tuesday 4th April 2017 7:30pm at The Baum, Rochdale
For getting around the Branch go to Transport for Greater Manchester.
Message from Peter Maguire, Branch Secretary
ROB Bury Area Members Meeting - 21st March
Hello my name is Peter Maguire and I am the Secretary for the Rochdale, Oldham and Bury branch of CAMRA. I am writing to invite you to a meeting specifically for members within the Bury Metro area. This will take place upstairs at Wyldes in Bury on 21 March at 19.30. We are holding this meeting here because some members have told us that they were unable to get to the monthly branch meetings held in Rochdale. Other members had told us we should move meetings around the branch. This is our response to those comments. I will chair the meeting and there will be several committee members in attendance as well who also live in the Bury area. We will give you a brief outline of what happens in the branch as a whole and at the monthly meetings as well but the main focus will be to hear your comments and ideas.. We are always keen to get more involvement from our members and feel this is a good way to start this process. I would be pleased if you could advise me if you intend to be at the meeting, so that we can get some ideas of the numbers likely to attend, by sending me an email to ku.oc.oohay@1gamretep. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this meeting.
