I joined CAMRA a few years ago as I loved real ale and liked the idea of joining a group to make new friends who shared the same passion as me.
I am now Social Secretary for our branch and like to encourage members to let me know what events they would like to organise and I try to build on this success.
I also like to participate in Good Beer Guide surveying, writing to my MP on beer and pub issues, delivering our branch magazines to local pubs and writing articles for this publication.
This keeps me busy in my retirement and I would encourage other members to get active and just go for it! It's fun, safe and helps make a difference.
