Social.. Secretary:

Postcodes are to help you locate pubs on
Streetmap uk, or Beer in the Evening website....

As some pubs are opening on Saturday 4th July we can resume Branch Socials, with due care, from Thursday 9th July.

Thursday 9th July: Buckingham Arms, Shoreham, initially from 7.30pm

You'll need your face mask, of course, for public transport and could use them inside the pubs. It will be interesting to see how each place manages things. I will probably bring my own tankard or glass to transfer the beer into. Initially... will try for places with an outside drinking area although these might fill up pretty soon? The Buck is handy for transport, does decent beer, and near other pubs which may be open by then. We can plan future Socials with whoever turns up. Cheers!

Thurs. 16 July from 8pm - to be decided, see above

Thurs 23rd July from 8pm - to be decided, see above
