Unspoilt rural pub wins prestigious award

The Lunesdale Branch of CAMRA is pleased to announce that its 2016 Pub of the Year is the Limeburner’s Arms in Nether Kellet. This was chosen by a panel of judges using definite criteria, from nominations by local members. The certificate of the award was presented at a ceremony in the pub well-attended by both pub regulars and CAMRA members. Presenting the certificate, Branch Chairman Michael Dillon said, β€œIt is a real pleasure to present this award to an unspoilt rural pub. Three other pubs were nominated and the result was very close, but to win this award you don’t have to be a smart town pub having a big range of real ales. The Limeburner’s Arms came out on top as it is a very good rural community pub selling good locally brewed real ale at reasonable prices. It is a friendly pub welcoming both locals and visitors alike and customers will always talk to strangers. Nether Kellet would be worse off if it were to close.” Receiving the certificate, proprietor Joe Moore said, β€œI was quite shocked to receive this. Thanks to the members of CAMRA for choosing me and my customers for supporting me.”

Beer festival off — statement

Recognising that there is nobody available to organise the Morecambe Beer Festival, the Lunesdale branch has regretfully decided to cancel the event for 2016. The committee would like to thank everyone who helped at the festivals, particularly those who did the advance organisation and hope they will find other ways to support the Campaign; also our partners, especially the Trimpell Club. We would emphasise that the festivals should not be considered failures simply because they lost money.
