    Updates from Grimsby & NE Lincolnshire CAMRA

    Minutes from the  July branch business meeting at the Yarborough Hotel, Grimsby.

    Attendance was 23

    Apologies for absence received from 3 members.

    There were no matters arising.

    General

    1. There was no call from the meeting for a cider promotion in October but if interest is later shown then it could be proposed as an event.

    2. It was pointed out that members can opt in or out of receipt of the paper version of What's Brewing. A version may be viewed on the main CAMRA website camra.org.uk. It was pointed out that not all members have access to the internet. At present, there is still a paper copy for those who desire it and only new members will have to request the paper edition.

    3. A plea was made for a magazine editor as there is a vacancy. It was revealed that articles which are the mainstay haven't been forthcoming for a number of years, which means that there is no edition at the moment. Members were invited to submit articles for publication on or before the next meeting in order to see if there is a call or indeed any content for a magazine.
