** Next event(s) **

  • Next bus trip to local villages (Thursdays) Thursday 19 July 2018 19:15 – 23:00 Community Centre

    This is a reminder of the scheduled CAMRA East Hampshire bus trip to local villages on THURSDAY 19 JULY (Route 4), to visit approx. 4 pubs/clubs.
    This is an 'open' event - i.e. all are welcome - not just CAMRA members, so why not bring a friend?

    An email will be sent out to branch members nearer the time detailing pubs to be visited.
    [They are not listed here so that publicans are not pre-warned about (and cannot prepare for) our visit.]

    Meet at Community Centre at 19.15 for 19.30 departure - back in Alton around 22.30.

    Cost is £8 per head.
    NOTE : If we don't get at least 6 people (excluding driver), we may well have to cancel the bus, as it won't be economically viable - so PLEASE REPLY TO THE EMAIL WHICH WILL BE SENT OUT BY THE TIME SPECIFIED.
    If I hear nothing, I will assume you will not be attending.

    In the case of having to cancel the bus, those of us who do turn up will probably go via private car(s).

  • Walkabout in Alton (West route) Thursday 16 August 2018 20:00 French Horn

    This is a reminder of the scheduled CAMRA East Hampshire 'walkabout' in Alton on THURSDAY 16 AUGUST (West route).
    This is an 'open' event - i.e. all are welcome - not just CAMRA members, so why not bring a friend?

    Meet at the French Horn - we will be visiting approx. 4 pubs/clubs.

    There is NO EXTRA COST for this event, and no need to get back to me with confirmation - just turn up!
