With the General Election looming, CAMRA has launched its “Pledge for Pubs” campaign. CAMRA is asking all election candidates to pledge their support for beer and pubs by committing to:
1. Beer: Celebrate and promote Britain’s 1,540 breweries
2. Pubs: Support action to help pubs thrive
3. Consumers: Represent the interests of pub goers, beer and cider drinkers
You can read more info here, which includes links to an auto generated form that can be sent to all of the candidates in our branch and another link to a spreadsheet to show which of our candidates have already signed up.
Post Election Update: Sadly, our elected MP never signed the pledge. Neither did the MP for Gloucester. The MPs for Stroud and Tewkesbury did sign up. We hope those branches follow-up on this pledge.
