Excellent news for the branch is that the Cricketers has won the Merseyside Pub of the Year for the second year running and will now go forward to run off with the Cheshire POTY to see who becomes Regional POTY. Well done to Andy , Denise and all the staff who have worked so hard to achieve this and good luck in the next stage.
This year we are again doing our Mild Ale walk across St Helens Town Centre. We have cut the number of pubs down a bit as it was getting a bit tough to get through everywhere in the time provided. But we are going to focus on quality by drinking Championship winning mild's in each pub. Everyone is welcome to join us in what has in previous years been a very enjoyable night. Many thanks in advance to the publicans involved for supplying such great quality beers.
The Mayor welcoming CAMRA members from around the country as they visited The Cricketers on Friday night. As a branch we staged several social events for visitors to the National AGM and the feedback we received was excellent. Hopefully our visitors will return home and spread the word of how good St Helens is for real ale and ciders.
