CHANGE OF VENUE
We have reluctantly changed the venue for this week's branch meeting as the Ship Inn Blackbrook as it is currently not serving real ale (although we are assured it will return next week).
Therefore we have moved the meeting to the Talbot Ale House (formerly the Sportsman's) on Duke Street. The meeting time remains the same 8pm.
Hopefully see you there
The next branch meeting is at the Ship Inn Blacbrook on Wednesday 9th December 2015
We are holding a presentation night in the Cricketers Arms Peter Street on 25/09/2015. This should be a great night. All members are encouraged to attend to help us celebrate the success of this excellent pub.
Great news for the Branch and the real ale drinker in St Helens is that The Cricketers Arms on Peter St is the Merseyside and Cheshire Regional Pub of the Year for 2015. Well done to Andy Barbara and Denise for scooping this award it is a testament to the hard work and vision you have put in over the last couple of years. Good luck in the national voting
The next branch meeting will be in the Bird i'th'and on Prescot Road. 8pm start all members welcome
A great day was had at our crown green bowling competition in 18th July 2015. In a keenly fought competition the St Helens branch came from behind to win the inaugural Geoff Almond Cup. Our thanks go to Geoff for donating the cup, Liverpool CAMRA for being excellent oponents and Adam and Kylie from the Brown Edge for being such excellent hosts. We look forward to renewing our rivalry at next year's event.
Great news for the town and the branch as The Cricketers Arms has scooped the Champion Pub of Merseyside award beating off competition from Gallaghers in Birkenhead, The Freshfield (last year's national POTY runner up) and the Liverpool Pigeon. Congratulations on a job very well done go to Andy Denise and Barbara. The next stage is the Regional POTY where the Cricks will be up against HOPS Belgian Beer Bar in Crewe. We wish them the very best of luck and are keeping our fingers crossed.
