This note is to let everybody know of the recent sad loss to us all of a great friend.

George died on 25th October 2017.

George had been a life member of CAMRA, and was active within the Branch for many years. His death was not expected and has come as a shock to those closer to him. George was a very private man, and we were the ones who were lucky to be able to call him a friend. And, as those in and around Guisborough know, George was a great lover of Samuel Smiths Old Brewery Bitter.

Walking into the Anchor will never be the same not seeing him there. His adage that "the more Sam Smiths you drink, then the more money you save" will stay with us for a long time.

George's memorial service will take place on Wednesday the 8th November at 11:00 St Nicholas Parish Church Guisborough which is next door to Guisborough Priory.

Sheffield's Real Heritage Pubs: Pub Interiors of Historic Interest

This new publication, the first Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) book about Heritage Pubs in Sheffield, is available as a free download. Edited by Sheffield and District CAMRA, Pub Heritage Officer, Dave Pickersgill, this ground-breaking document is the first attempt to create a snapshot of the Sheffield Pub Heritage picture. Paul Ainsworth, Chair of the CAMRA National Pub Heritage Group: "Over the past 25 years, CAMRA has developed its national and regional inventories of historic pub interiors.

These highlight the crème de la crème of interiors which have either escaped much alteration for many years or contain features of exceptional interest. We have, though, been aware that below these top tiers can be found a host of interiors which, whilst much changed, still offer a great deal worth seeing. The pioneering work carried out in Sheffield to locate and record these pubs has been an inspiring exercise. It enables compilation of this publication portraying the rich tapestry of Sheffield's pubs from the nationally important to those where what remains, may be fragments, but is nevertheless to be cherished. A bonus, of course, is that many of these pubs sell great real ale.

We hope this guide is the first of many." Included in the 81 pages are over 30,000 words, over 300 images and detailed comment on all the 22 Sheffield pubs listed on the CAMRA Pub Heritage website. Also documented are both local pubs with some historical interest and many fragments of our historical brewery and pub heritage. The book is freely available from the Sheffield CAMRA website. Grateful thanks are given to numerous individuals, the National CAMRA Pub Heritage Group and Sheffield Archives: the latter for providing access to unique historic documentation.
