I’m showing my support for pub-goers and beer drinkers by backing the CAMRA Manifesto for the 2016 Assembly elections.
CAMRA’s manifesto calls for greater protection for valued community pubs by introducing a bespoke Welsh solution to protect community assets in Wales. Local residents across England have the right to nominated ‘Assets of Community Value’ (ACVs) in their community, which has saved numerous pubs from re-development into supermarkets and housing estates. Election candidates have been asked to back similar legislation in Wales which goes even further to support local pubs.
I am proud to be speaking up for pubs and real ale. Well-run community pubs play a crucial role in local life and can have a huge impact on people’s happiness and social inclusion. If elected, I will continue to show my support in the Assembly.
CAMRA has been campaigning for 40 years in Wales for quality real ale, community pubs and the rights of pub-goers and real ale drinkers. There are now 5,000 CAMRA members in Wales, and the organisation acts as the independent voice for real ale drinkers and pub goers.
