In recent years our branch magazine has twice been awarded the title of most improved magazine within CAMRA.

However, at the recent CAMRA AGM in Liverpool, Full Pints was awarded the title Branch Magazine of the Year.  Our magazine editor, Stuart McMahon was rightly chuffed at this success and was quick to thank the many members who contribute articles and photographs for our quarterly publication.

Having won the Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA Club of the Year title, Garnock Community Social Club in Kilbirnie, has been awarded the title Scotland & Ireland CAMRA Club of the Year 2016.

The club, which had been closed for a number of years, reopened 2 years ago under new management and with a new committee.  Thanks to their positive attitude and enthusiasm, the club is once more a major hub within the local community opening 7 days a week and the introduction of real ale has been a major success.
