Welcome to the South Devon CAMRA Website
- Branch Diary -

Some of our branch members doing what they do best - enjoying a nice pint!Like the 200 or so other CAMRA branches we hold regular monthly meetings and social events. As can be seen from the list below these tend to be in pubs with an area suitable for us to fit into, and rotate around our branch area. Meetings generally fall on the second Tuesday of the month and last an hour or two. They are informal, friendly affairs with plenty of beer breaks! Generally the main committee members each give a brief report of their activities (chairman, secretary, treasurer etc.) and then we go on to discuss other matters such as forthcoming beer festivals, plan social trips, and cover other matters such as National CAMRA campaigns, local pub and brewery news etc. If you're a CAMRA member, you're more than welcome to attend one of our meetings. If you're not yet a member and you'd like to join, please click here for more information. Below the list of branch meetings is a further table listing some of our forthcoming social events.
