Socialising

Regular social evenings are regularly held each month.  As our branch area covers such a large area, social activities are organised separately in North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire and Wigtownshire.  All members and non-members are welcome to attend. The main focus of these socials is simply to get to know one another and sample good ale.  Non-members will not be pressured into joining but can learn more about the organisation.


South Ayrshire Christmas Lunch 2017

On Sunday, 10th December 2017, about 40 local members gathered in Wellingtons Bar, Ayr for the annual Christmas lunch. The festive atmosphere was enhanced by numerous Christmassy jumpers, novelty ties and the odd dodgy shirt. Nan and her family provided us with a delicious meal which was enjoyed by all.  The beer, as always, was in excellent condition and flowed continuously.  Many thanks to Caroline Munro for all her organistional skills.

     

Festival Volunteers Trip

A party of over 40 CAMRA volunteers enjoyed a visit to Alloa Real Ale Festival on Saturday, 28th October.  After pick-ups in Kilwinning, Prestwick, Ayr, Kilmarnock and Glasgow our happy bunch headed to Alloa Town Hall, the festival venue.  With beer vouchers duly purchased, a seating area already reseved for us and glasses in hand, we set about sampling some of the 60 ales on offer.  After some 3 hours it was time to move on.  We made the short trip to Larbert and the Station Hotel.  The hospitality was excellent with 5 ales on hand-pull.  Complimentary pies and sausage rolls were provided and disappeared like snow off a dyke.
