Rugby CAMRA Campaigns
Rugby CAMRA are currently focusing all campaigning on encouraging everyone to visit their local pub and drink real ale to help our traditional breweries and pubs survive the current recession.
We will be doing this by focusing on the following campaigns:
With the most recent Beer & Pub Association report highlighting that 5 pubs are closing every day, CAMRA has to do more than ever to support local pubs through these difficult times.
CAMRA has launched a new campaign called Local Pubs Week for 2009. From the National CAMRA Web site:
Local Pubs Week is about:
Raising the profile and importance of pubs in the community
1. Encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to use community pubs and visit the pub more often than they currently do
2. Encourage pubs to organise events during the week to entice more trade
With the aim of:
Stop plans to increase beer tax by up to a third.
Encourage those responsible to enforce existing laws - not create new ones - to deal firmly with irresponsible drinkers and premises.
To end the irresponsible promotion of alcohol in supermarkets, pubs and elsewhere.
To trust responsible adults to make informed choices about what they drink, not punish them for the actions of an irresponsible minority.
To support the British pub as a vital part of social life in local communities.

CAMRA LocAle is a new initiative that promotes pubs stocking locally brewed real ale. The scheme builds on a growing consumer demand for quality local produce and an increased awareness of 'green' issues.
The CAMRA LocAle scheme was created in 2007 by CAMRA's Nottingham branch which wanted to help support the tradition of brewing within Nottinghamshire, following the demise of local brewer Hardys and Handsons.
Everyone benefits from local pubs stocking locally-brewed real ale. Public houses as stocking local real ales can increase pub visits as consumers enjoy greater beer choice and diversity. Local brewers gain from increased sales and the local economy because more money is spent and retained locally. The environment due to fewer 'beer miles' resulting in less road congestion and pollution. Tourism due to an increased sense of local identity and pride - let's celebrate what makes our locality different.
