LETTER in the monthly CAMRA Newspaper "Whats Brewing"
SIGN UP FOR NEW GROUP FOR THE DEAF.
I am trying to start a CAMRA deaf group so we can meet at beer festivals and have beery talk in sign language or whatever suits us.
I only started training in sign language four years ago so forming this group would be good practice for me.
The other aim of the group is to try and introduce real ale to the deaf community as most are accustomed to drinking bland fizz at their local deaf club or meet up.
If you are interested and know anyone with a hearing problem and want to be one of the first pioneers, please email me at moc.loa@luapelalaer or text Paul Colin on 07454 706160.
Do you know anyone who would like to join this deaf group ?

11th MAY 2016.
The Radnor in New Radnor has closed as the building is leaking and Steve Dunn the tenant has walked away.
A public meeting on 11th May met the owner who has agreed to get a valuation with a view to a possible buy out by the local community.
The owner has had a valuation done.
He refuses to say what it is to the community and will not get into discussions.
Does nothing to dispel the theory that he wants the place to fall down, so he can build houses.

There are lots of reports about their food and real ales being good quality.
The Greyhound at Llangunllo, the Arvon Ale House in Llandrindod and the Red Lion in Knighton, have received accreditation from Radnorshire CAMRA branch.
This scheme aims to promote pubs that sell locally-brewed real ale and the pubs have to agree to serve at least one locally-brewed real ale at all times.
The Radnorshire CAMRA definition of locally-brewed is a distance of 30 miles from pub to brewery, as the crow flies.
Look out for the pump clips, as below.
