Local Campaigning Targets

At our branch AGM in March 2017, the following campaigning targets were agreed:


The branch will make a concerted effort to raise the profile of real ale in areas currently regarded as beer deserts e.g. Kilwinning, Cumnock, the Irvine Valley and the Doon Valley.

Any member who has the misfortune to reside in an area that is bereft of real ale outlets is encouraged to talk to the licencees of their local pubs/clubs/hotels about real ale and its benefits at every opportunity.  Keep requesting real ale and perhaps leave a few copies of our branch magazine.


Adopt strategies to support rural pubs.

This would include attending Bus Users Group meetings and republishing the Rail and Bus pub guides to help achieve this target.  A refreshed digital version of the Ale Trails using public transport should be available later in 2017 with hard copies printed in early 2018.


Activate members through greater use of social media.

Members are encouraged to share their real ale related activities via our Facebook group, including:

  • information on real ales available in their local pubs
  • beer festivals they may be visiting
  • photgraphs of their activities
