Scunthorpe and District
We are a small and friendly local branch of CAMRA,
a national consumer organisation which campaigns on behalf of UK drinkers on subjects such as choice,
value for money, good beer and good pubs.
We have regular meetings in local pubs, plus a programme of social activities including
visits to beer festivals and breweries. CAMRA members and prospective members are welcome
to attend our meetings and socials.
Details can be found here on the website, in the members' newspaper, 'What's Brewing',
or the branch newsletter, 'Iron Brew'; the latter is free and distributed to many
real ale pubs in our area on a quarterly basis and can be downloaded from this page.
Pub of the Season Presentation, The Yarborough Hunt, Brigg
Our Winter Pub of the Season award goes to the The Yarborough Hunt, Brigg.
The pub opened in 2003 after a sympathetic refurbishment of buildings which originally formed
the Sargeant's Brewery Tap.
The Manageress, Lucy Fensome, who has always promoted real ale, received the award
and Tom Wood whose ales feature strongly in the pub was was also in attendance.
We wish the Yarborough Hunt continued success in the future, presenting the Pub of the Season award
on Wednesday 5th February.
Another successful Christmas Party was held at the Malt Shovel, Ashby.
This included a buffet, quiz and raffle as to be expected although there appeared to be a new theme
this year of 'accessorising'.
