    Delia, one of the owners, is proposing a walk from Binghams on Sunday 29th July 2018, starting at the brewery at 10.30am.

    We will walk to the The Bell Inn at Waltham St Lawrence aiming to get there at 12.00pm. I suggest if people want to eat, that they book a table directly. Their contact details are:

    0118 934 1788 http://thebellwalthamstlawrence.co.uk/

    For people who want to bring a packed lunch, they can bring that back to the brewery and have it there.

    We will then walk back to the brewery - aiming for 3.00pm where people can buy a pint or three from the brewery!

    I will need to know how many people are going to attend, so that I can set up the brewery accordingly and also so I know who will be the at the start.

    If anyone would just like to come along and meet up for a beer at the brewery at 3pm, then that is fine, but I will need to know too.

    Last year around 90 classic buses and coaches participated, 14 different routes were operated, totaling some 8,500 miles over the weekend. This year will see a few revisions to the route network based on feedback from visitors, vehicle owners and volunteer marshals.

    Some 80 pubs and other licensed venues took part in the 2017 event and all of these will be approached for 2018. We have a team of "Pub Liaison Officers" who will visit each one to discuss the event and how the venue can benefit. Most of the marshals at the ports and pubs are CAMRA volunteers, but more are needed to cope with the growing success of the event. Please would any prospective marshals please email us. We can't pay you but you will have a fun day and probably get a very fetching hi-viz waistcoat to wear.
