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 50p 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 the Branch AGM on Tuesday 5th June 2018, 7:30pm at The Baum, Rochdale.
