A number of Sheffield members helped out at the inaugral Dronfield CAMRA beer & cider festival alongside Dronfield and Chesterfield folk. The festival featured around 40 real ales and a dozen ciders on the CAMRA bars plus craft keg, food and entertainment. The venue was the Pioneer Club, spread across the concert hall, back room, yard and gardens. It ran from 30th May to 1st June. The CAMRA membership stand volunteers signed up around 40 new members, if you are one of them you will be most welcome to come along to a branch meeting or social! If you are a Sheffield member you will find the diary at the back of Beer Matters whilst if you are a Dronfield member look out for Peel Ale magazine or visit www.dronfield.camra.org.uk. We are now looking forward to the longer established Sheffield Steel City beer & Cider festival which we are organising for October at Kelham Island Museum!
