Welcome to the West Cheshire branch of CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale

Our Area of Campaigning

CAMRA's West Cheshire Branch offers a warm welcome to everyone, especially if you live in our catchment area bounded by these parts of West Cheshire:

Hooton, Ellesmere Port, Ince, Hapsford, Kelsall, Clotton, Huxley, Bulkley and Willey Moor

Where we actually cover in terms of pubs is often a topic of hot debate (no, seriously) and certainly causes much confusion amongst members. Is it based on postcodes - the method used to determine branch membership numbers - or does it follow specific national, county, district and parish boundaries? Well, the answer is a bit of everything suggesting that whoever devised the rules must have had ten pints of Old Peculier beforehand as well as a few psychedelic drugs. If you wish to lose the will to live then read on.

In England it's relatively straight forward. Everywhere in the former local government districts of Chester and Ellesmere Port & Neston Borough (prior to their merger with Vale Royal to form Cheshire West & Cheshire) is ours except for Willaston, Neston and Parkgate which Wirral CAMRA Branch supervises.

CH4 - Saltney on the English side of the border.

Now, there's also some bewilderment about SY13 and SY14 postcodes which affect Barton, Malpas, Nomansheath, Sarn, Shocklach, Tilston, Tushingham and Willey Moor. If this is you, but you live in Chester District (as was), then we cover your patch. Trust us on this one.

Now go to bed, take a sedative, and be ready for an exam in the morning.
