The lot of a CAMRA Chairman isn't always a happy one. Relentless hours of voluntary work aren't that much fun you know, but occasionally you do get a reward. No, I don't mean free beer, but the simple satisfaction of a new member turning up to a meeting, enjoying it and the socialising afterwards and what's more promising to come again. And she was female. Bonus. We need more female members at our meetings. We need more members at our meetings, but that's always so.

Don't believe that CAMRA is an unwelcoming clique. Mostly, that just in't the case, but like all things you attend for the first time, it takes a few more tries to get in the swing of things.

And we had Mallinson's beer too. What a good do.
