West Berkshire seeking a new editor for Campaign for Real Ale magazine

CAMRA is currently recruiting staff to run its industry magazine.

CAMRA's (Campaign for Real Ale) West Berkshire branch is currently recruiting for a new assistant editor to run their free quarterly magazine, Ullage.

The magazine is essential to the campaign's work in preventing the closure of rural pubs.

Pubs have always been a centre for social interaction in rural communities, but have come under increasing pressure under the rising cost of living and beer taxes. The position of editor is crucial in highlighting each pub's successes and voicing their concerns.

The voluntary role is ideal for those interested in gaining publishing experience. A knowledge of pubs, beer, cider and brewing practices is desirable but not essential. The magazine is distributed to almost every pub within a 12 mile radius of Newbury.

Current editor, Tim Thomas, recently stepped down from the role after 14 years. For further information, please contact Mr Thomas at: editor@westberkscamra.org.uk.

The West Berkshire branch of CAMRA formed in 1986 and covers the area from Aldworth to Aldermaston, which includes the towns of Newbury, Thatcham, Hungerford and Lambourn. It succeeded the former Newbury branch, which was established in 1974.

Monthly meetings are held in different pubs, usually on a Tuesday or Wednesday, and are open to all. The branch regularly organises social functions, including an annual beer-based dinner, brewery tours and a home-brewing competition.
