Thanks to everyone who has been on the survey trips this year. They have been very well attended with a different mix of people every month and several members have joined us for the first time. By the end of the year we will have visited and input scores for 60 Amber Valley pubs and covered others by holding Branch and Beer Festival meetings at them. Barratts Coaches have been very reliable all year and Derek Sellors is always very friendly and amenable to our pick up and drop off requests. I have really enjoyed everyone’s company and I know a lot of new friendships have been made during the year. I look forward to seeing you in the New Year.
