Adopt a pub and become a pub representative in South Herts

Written by Les Middlewood

Attention all CAMRA Members in South Hertfordshire!

As you are reading this article, the chances are that you are interested in pubs and visit them frequently. Where else can you enjoy the opportunity of meeting friends in a convivial and relaxing atmosphere, have a chat, watch some sport, listen to live music, and of course partake in the tipple of your choice. Britain is rightfully proud of its pub culture and is the envy of the world, so much so, that the good old British Boozer and all the great things it represents, has been replicated all around the planet as a place for people to relax and socialise.

One of the many reasons CAMRA publishes this magazine is to keep you up to date with what is happening in pubs all around Hertfordshire. But have you ever wondered why some new and interesting developments in your local have not been reported in these pages? Is it under new management?  Under threat of closure?  Is it being refurbished? Has a new or extended range of beers been introduced, or has quiz or live music night changed? Well, it’s probably because we haven’t heard from you. But we’d very much like to…

In short, we are looking to establish an informal group of Pub Representatives around the South Hertfordshire branch area, people that visit one (or more) pubs on a regular basis and are happy to let us know of any interesting developments occurring on their patch. Of course, we would prefer it if you were a CAMRA member but that is not essential.

Information that amounts to an out and out advert will still need to be taken out in Pints of View in the standard way, but we are keen to offer our publicans support by spreading news particularly in these difficult times of rate reassessments and high taxation.

The South Herts branch area covers St.Albans, Harpenden, Wheathampstead, Welwyn, Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Hertford, Ware, Cuffley, Potters Bar, Borehamwood, Radlett, London Colney, Bricket Wood and the villages between.

If you are willing to become one of our Pub Reps for a pub, or some pubs in these areas, please contact PubReps@hertsale.org.uk and we’ll get back to you with how to contact us when you have information to share.

In addition to this scheme you can also update us with any developments on any pub you visit by filling in the feedback form that can be found on each pub entry on whatpub.com.
