We catch the 11:14 train from Sheffield out to New Mills Central for a visit to Torrside Brewery’s monthly tap room session along with some of the pubs in the town. A return train ticket is £12.80 or alternatively a Derbyshire Wayfarer train+bus all day pass will cover this journey.

Branch AGM- CANCELLED

8pm Tue 14 Apr

All branch members are invited to our annual general meeting to elect a new committee for the year ahead, vote on any motions for debate to amend the branch constitution or local policy, inspect the branch accounts and hear the results of the Pub of the Year competition announced. This is followed by the regular monthly branch meeting where we share pub, club and brewery news and more – all over a pint or two of course. The venue is the Greystones pub back room, bus 83 stops right outside the pub or various other buses (81/82, 88, 218, 272) stop a short walk away on Ecclesall Road South.

Please note the deadline for submitting motions to debate is the March branch meeting and the deadline for voting for Pub of the Year is 10th February (after which the area winners as voted for will be judged to find the overall winner).

FANCY JOINING THE COMMITTEE? Get involved, help make things happen, keep the branch moving forward (or just help with a bit of admin)! If you are interested or want to know more, drop our branch secretary an email.  (Note if there are more volunteers than positions it is subject to election at the AGM).
