Free Bus to CAMRA's Mass Lobby of Parliament on 12/12/12
Our chairman John Bellinger has arranged a coach to take beer lovers
from North Oxfordshire to London for the "Save Your Pint" mass
lobby on Wednesday 12th December. Transport is FREE and is not limited
to CAMRA members.
A third of the cost of your pint in the pub goes to the government in
tax, and this increases by 2% above inflation annually. Help us to take
the message to parliament that this beer duty "escalator" is
not helping our local pubs.
Places on the coach are limited so please contact John
to book your seat, and register to attend at saveyourpintlobby.org.uk
Pickups: Chipping Norton 07:30, Hook Norton 07:45, Banbury 8am, Bicester
08:25, Oxford (Sandhills) 9am. Returning early evening.
