Typesetting by Apostle Designs Email: Printed by Print North East Email: TALKING ED CAMRA’s Revitalisation Project has undertaken the most fundamental appraisal of its purpose and campaigning since it was formed. The proposals and Special Resolutions will be voted on either in person at CAMRA’s AGM in Coventry in April or via proxy. What will not change is the name and spirit of the campaign. It will continue to be an independent, non-party political, volunteer-led organisation. (For the full list of proposals see page 20). Community Pubs Month, which launches on 1st April, will showcase thousands of community events across Britain. Pubs are encouraged to put on charity fundays, barbecues, quizzes, live music and more. Beer Day Britain is held annually on 15th June, because that is the date Magna Carta was sealed in 1215. Article 35 of the great charter stated: ‘Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn, namely the London quarter’. Today beer and pubs are still central to British life. At 7.00pm on 15th June people will be raising a glass of beer and saying “Cheers to Beer” (see branch website for details). Finally, the 42nd Newcastle Beer & Cider Festival is on from 11th to 14th April at Northumbria University Students Union in Newcastle (see page 11). I’ll see you all there.
