CAMRA - Richmond & Hounslow Branch

Dear <<First Name>>

Happy New Year!

The time has come yet again to nominate entries for the Good Beer Guide (GBG). We have eighteen guaranteed entries in GBG 2019 and will additionally choose seven reserves in the hope of getting a few more of our best licensed premises in the Guide. This year the Branch has selected 36 pubs for the shortlist and members of the Branch can select up to 18 for which to vote (voting instructions below). 
Barring any problems such as the pub closing down, the top 18 will go through and the next seven will be reserves, listed in order of the number of votes they receive. This will be confirmed at our February Committee meeting at The Fox, 39 Church Street, Twickenham on Thursday the 1st at 8 pm. We will hold the meeting in a private room in the pub to maintain confidentiality. Branch members are welcome to attend.
The 25 selected premises will then be visited, their descriptions on What Pub updated and the list sent off to CAMRA HQ via our Regional Board by George Gimber who deserves our thanks for keeping our What Pub entries, Website and Newsletters accurate and up to date.

To cast your vote (which can be for 1 to 18 pubs) follow the link below. Remember to enter your name and membership number otherwise your vote will not count.

To vote click here. The vote will open in a new tab in your browser.


Below you'll find details of meetings and socials planned for the next couple of months. Please come and join us at some of them.
Best wishes

Charles Owens
Branch Chairman

Exciting Opportunity
Yes - a once in a lifetime chance to join the Richmond and Hounslow Branch elite band of London Drinker distributors. A vacancy has arisen for a distributor to cover five pubs in the Isleworth area, delivering the CAMRA London Drinker (LD) publication. The pubs are:

London Apprentice – 40 copies
Red Lion - 70 copies
Royal Oak – 30 copies
Swan – 20 copies
Victoria – 10 copies

LDs are collected from the Magpie and Crown, Brentford and then delivered to the pubs every two months, a marvellous excuse to linger in each hostelry for a while to consider, and perhaps sample, their beers. Any member interested in seizing the moment and volunteering for this task should contact Mr Andy Pirson, Branch Treasurer and LD co-ordinator on the following email address:
