Calling all young members! Love real ale? Enjoy drinking in real British pubs? Wish you could meet like-minded people? Now you can!
I'm Helen Threlfall, and I'm your Branch Young Members Contact (BYMC). As Young Members, we arrange varied socials events throughout the year, including trips to rural pubs, pub crawls, trips to other branch areas and beer festivals, and when the time comes, we help with the Wigan Beer Festival.
CAMRA’s definition of a Young Member is a person under 30. My role as BYMC means that I am responsible for ensuring the branch considers the needs of young members when planning campaigning and social events. I will communicate with national and regional Young Members Contacts in order to keep abreast of special campaigns and promotions, and act on behalf of young members during the main branch meetings to promote our views in the branch.
With suggestions and input from Young Members and young people, we hope this page will grow into a more informative and exciting part of the website. So if you want more information on any of the issues covered, have ideas for subjects you'd like to see on this page or want to get involved please get in touch with me. Don’t just think about it – come along and get involved!
We aim to hold regular events, which can be anything from a local crawl or brewery tour to an adventure further affield! We try to do something different each time, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know! Please contact me to find out what is happening over the next few months.
