Welcome to the Website for the Bexley Branch of CAMRA
The Bexley CAMRA AGM was held on 11th September at Dartfordians Community Sports Club.
Thanks to all those that attended and voted.
The usual issues were the election of a committee and this was largely unchanged.
Our current Secretary (Pete Ravenscroft) is likely to move out of our area in the near future so we have appointed a
Vice Secretary (Sandy Welch) to shadow Pete and take over when he departs.
Pete, Thanks for many years of service, and thanks to Sandy for volunteering to take over.
We still need a Pubs officer and a Young Person's Representative, so please step forward (don't be shy).
The AGM was dominated by CAMRA HQ's proposals for reorganisation (nationally and
at branch level).
To summarise for our area, CAMRA HQ want to combine Kent with Surrey/Sussex to
create a super region, and to move our Bexley Branch (currently affiliated to
Kent) into London.
The committee oppose both of these proposals and those present at the AGM
supported the committee proposal for Bexley Branch to remain affiliated to Kent.
We cannot significantly influence the super region proposal.
Aside from the AGM, we recently had a beer festival staff trip to Ely & Cambridge, and a social at the Spa Valley Beer Festival.
See the Gallery page for photos.
The 2024 Bexley Beer Festival will run from Thursday 9th May to Saturday 11th May.
The themes of the festival will be the 100th anniversary of Dartfordians Rugby Club and the 6oth anniversary of Radio Caroline (259).
