The Bromley branch of the Campaign for Real Ale celebrated reaching 1,000 members with a gathering last week at the Red Lion pub.

Members enjoyed beer barrel-shaped cake, and, of course, plenty of real ale.

Branch Chair, Peter Rolfe said: “It took 40 years for CAMRA to build up a membership of 800 in Bromley, but in just the past year and a half, that has risen to more than 1,000.”

Its 1,000th member was Peter Hughes. He said: “I met some of the Bromley members at a social and they were all very friendly; I felt part of the group even though I had arrived alone. My favourite beer is always the one I have in my hand; I have a varied taste and enjoy nearly all styles.”
