Message from the Chairman 

Following a tremendous effort by our membership team, including Lyn Sharpe, Paul Redfern and Richard Tupholme, at the Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival at Magna in February, our membership total at the end of March stands at 989. I believe this is the highest ever for Rotherham Branch and is tantalisingly close to the magic 1000 mark.

Many congratulations to everyone involved with the Membership stand at Magna. One more push and we’ll achieve our goal of 1000 members.


Keep safe and healthy
