CAMRA news re: COVID-19

Hello North Herts members. Amid all the other news about COVID-19 Coronavirus, we wanted to make sure you have the latest from CAMRA.

Please see http://www.camra.org.uk/pullingtogether and our post on the same subject for details of an initiative to help pubs and their communities announced by CAMRA, SIBA (the Society of Independent Brewers) and Crowdfunder. The situation is moving very quickly and new Government guidance has emerged about this, so please check with the websites or social media of local pubs, breweries and taprooms to confirm what they are offering.

The news below was published on March 17th.

Following a CAMRA national decision, which was announced on March 17th with a press release you can reach via this link, that in turn follows government advice on mass gathering, CAMRA North Herts is cancelling all events for an initial three month period. This effects the Branch AGM, all monthly socials and trips and the Hitchin Beer & Cider Festival.

We’ll continue to keep in close touch with CAMRA nationally to consider any other actions or extensions of the period. We’ll in due course let you know when festivals and normal activities will recommence.

Meanwhile, we wish you well and encourage you to follow all advice as regularly updated in the news and official media.

All the best, from the CAMRA North Herts Committee.
