CAMRA has launched the "Brew2You" APP for Apple and Google Android devices 

https://brew2you.co.uk/

Brew2You was created by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) to support pubs and breweries during a time where trade is low and to help reduce wastage of beer.

The APP is a one stop shop allowing you to search, order and pay for ale in one place

Our aim is to bring people and great beer from great local businesses together.

A neighbourhood plan is being prepared for the Flixton area https://www.trafford.gov.uk/planning/strategic-planning/Development-Plan/neighbourhood-planning.aspx This link enables access to information on the boundary of the designated and the rationale for the plan.

A neighbourhood plan is prepared by local people to influence future planning decisions. Once approved, it is taken account by the local planning authority when making decisions on planning applications. The key issue to be addressed in this plan will be the allocation of land for housing development and its impact on the greenbelt. However, a key concern for CAMRA will be any policies that support or detract from the provision of local facilities, including pubs. Certainly any proposals to see pubs and/or pub car parks allocated for housing redevelopment need to be strongly resisted.

Altrincham already has an approved neighbourhood plan for Altrincham town centre. This sets out a future vision for the area, as well as including policies that support the provision of local facilities, including public houses. Tim Field, Trafford & Hulme’s pub protection officer was able to join the forum set up to prepare this plan but will be unable to play a similar role in preparing the Flixton plan as membership is restricted to local residents and/or those working in the designated area (which includes Trafford General Hospital).

If any Trafford & Hulme CAMRA Branch members living or working in the area would be willing to become a representative on the Flixton neighbourhood Forum, Tim would be willing to provide advice and support for you in that role. Please let me know as soon as possible as to whether you would be interested in joining the forum and we can approach its convenor, Paul Ashworth.

Regards

George Elmslie – Branch Chair

bqas2019 20Trafford & Hulme branch is one of several CAMRA branches participating a a trial of a Beer Quality Accreditation Scheme. Recognizing pubs consistently selling well-kept real ales is an important aspect of CAMRA’s campaigning to improve beer quality at the point of dispense and this new accreditation scheme is a means of recognizing quality. Pubs that gain accreditation can publicise the fact, including the display of the attached window sticker. The award is made based on scores entered into the National Beer Scoring Scheme by CAMRA members. CAMRA members are encouraged to score all real ale, cider and perry that they drink. For more information on this see the Beer Scoring page. 

The following pubs and clubs within the branch have currentlt achieved the requied standard and been awarded this accreditation. The scores will be reviewed on an regular basis, and additional pubs who attain the required standard will be added to the list.

Pulling Together Facebook Post 1COVID-19 has temporarily robbed us of our pubs and inns but some of our entrepreneurial local pubs and bars are keeping the beer and cider coming by offering low contact take out and delivery services. You can help support your favourite local business during this time of crisis, whilst adhering to the Government advice on social distancing measures. As the odd shape of the Branch Boundries means the nearest outlet may be in a neigbouring branch, here is a link to the Greater Manchester CAMRA page which lists all outlets in the Region:-

Beer Buzz SEP2019 Cover

The new issue of Beer Buzz is now available to download from beerbuzz.beer

Print copies will begin to appear in pubs across Manchester, Salford & Trafford from 25th September but online readers can read it now.

The largest ever issue at 44 pages includes the usual range of news on our local pubs and breweries along with a range of special features and interviews.

We talk to Nicky Kong, landlady of Manchester's Crown and Kettle and to Oli Turton, head brewer and owner of Squawk Brewing Co.

We celebrate one of Manchester's historic pubs, The Unicorn, being given grade 2 listed status but also look at how our local councils plans are failing our much loved pubs. There's also an indepth feature on how just two big city deals could affect over 7000 pubs.

Beer Buzz is produced by Trafford & Hulme CAMRA along with our neighbours in Central Manchester and Salford branches.
