St Neots - Joint Society Meeting, 17 June 2006

St Neots Breweriana Bash - 2006

Saturday 17 June 2006, 1200 noon

At the Bulls Head, Cambridge Street, St Neots, Cambridgeshire

Fancy a “Good Old Collectors Beano”? Then read on. There will be a fifth Joint Society Meeting starting at 12:00 hrs on Saturday the 17th June at the Bulls Head, Cambridge Street, St Neots, Cambs. It is hoped to have the following societies in attendance: the British Beermat Collectors Society, the British Brewery Playing Card Society, the Association of Breweriana Collectibles, the Labologists Society and the Brewery History Society

This event was very successful last year with over ninety people coming through the doors. In addition to the above clubs and societies, individuals are invited and encouraged to bring along items of breweriana to trade and sell. As pub tables are likely to be much in demand it would be advisable to bring along your trusty old pasting table in case the pub facilities run out.

A large area of the pub’s garden is now under cover so who cares what the weather's like. Also the pub landlady and landlord are keen football fans so if there’s any matches on the box you won’t miss them.

If you have any quality items to dispose of, Mike Peterson of the Association of Bottle Beer Collectors, will be organising an auction. Being an experienced CAMRA auctioneer he is also available for valuations. A sellers commission of 10% will be charged, which will go towards a charity selected by Cecile, the pub landlady.

This is a good chance to wallow in bottles, beermats, playing cards, labels, badges, etc and meet up with like-minded collectors from other societies, so please do try and come along and don't forget to bring as much breweriana as you can manage. This event will also be publicised in the local press so who knows what will turn up? I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy yourselves.
