Chairman's End of Year Letter
As is usual at the end of each year the CAMRA South West London branch Chairman, Mark Bravery, has produced his Ens of Year letter to all branch members. This Year it has been sent out via email to all CAMRAswl members who have an email address registered with CAMRA.
For those branch members who don't have an email address registered with CAMRA you can download a copy of the letter from the members' page swl.camra.org.uk/members/. This requires you to log in to CAMRA using your membership number and password. If you have forgotton or never knew your password the login page will let you create a new one.
We wish a Happy New Year to all South West London branch members and we would be delighted to see you at any of our branch events. Check swl.camra.org.uk/diary for our upcoming events.
We list here planning applications that threaten the future of pubs in the South West London branch area. At the present time there is none on which it is still possible to comment. It is most important that local residents especially post objections if the plans are to be refused. The main CAMRA
website includes advice on planning applications, and a link to it is here: Dealing with Planning Applications.
The CAMRA LocAle initiative is the accreditation scheme to promote pubs that sell locally-brewed real ale, reducing the number of ‘beer miles’ and supporting local breweries.
Several pubs in our area have LocAle accreditation. This entails a pub permanently stocking at least one real ale produced within thirty miles of the pub.
For more information and a list of accredited LocAle pubs in our area see our LocAle page.
CAMRA’s ON-LINE HERITAGE PUB GUIDE
The National Inventory is CAMRA's pioneering effort to identify and protect the most important historic pub interiors in the country. It has always been part of the campaign's mission to not only save real ale but also Britain's rich heritage of pubs. See www.heritagepubs.org.uk.
