After moving to a new area fives years ago, I took the opportunity to get more involved in CAMRA's North Herts Branch.
I am now the Branch and Social Secretary and help run the Hitchin Beer Festival. I also enjoy volunteering at the Great British Beer Festival in London and help judge the Hertfordshire Beer of the Year competition (somebody has to do it).
I would encourage all CAMRA members to get involved with their local branch - you will be doing your bit for real ale and local pubs but most importantly you will have a lot of fun!
Paul's Top Tips
- Get dates in diaries as early as possible
- Talk to your predecessor a lot
- Find out which of your local pubs have meeting rooms
- Don't try to do too many jobs
