Urgent Appeal for Volunteers to help run our Branch

We are now seeking a number of like-minded people to join the committee that runs Somerset Branch of CAMRA. If you would like to express an interest in any of these roles then please contact Katie Redgate, our branch contact. We will supply you with all the necessary information, advice and support you might need to help you decide how you might get involved. Most roles are not particularly demanding and all involve a good social element, making the commitment fun and rewarding.
