Welcome to Real Ale Rambles

<<<-------------------------Site last updated 21 June 2016 with the latest news on Rambles and Healthy Walks and some history pages...................Our July rambles are to Whitley and Warwick.......................Contributions always welcome - Cheers!-----------------------------<<<

Coventrian Fred Luckett has spent over 20 years scouring the United Kingdom countryside and parts of Europe for interesting rambles while indulging in one of his favourite pursuits, the discovery of traditional "real ales" beers, ciders and perries. Here he shares some of his more memorable journeys with you and invites like minded and curious folk to come along on his future adventures!

Also here is what we think is the only comprehensive record of pubs and beerhouses within the Coventry city boundaries going back as far as available records allow. You can find this under 'Pub History' in the navigation bar above. This is an ongoing project so contributions, corrections or additions to this archive, especially anecdotes, photos and media are most welcome, feel free to contact us for a pint and a chat anytime.


A campaign win for cider lovers!
apples

CAMRA's campaign to support small cider producers secured a fantastic win in the Chancellor's 2015 Budget with a firm commitment to uphold the current tax exemption for small cider producers "until and unless a replacement scheme is established" in the red book


Removing the exemption would have imposed a new tax burden of up to £2,700 on Britain's smallest cider producers, many of whom sell less than £10,000 worth of cider a year.

However, there is more work now to be done. On Tuesday the 7th July CAMRA representatives met with both the European Commissioner's office a number of supportive MEPs. It is only by amending the European Directive on Excise Duty that the UK Government can uphold their promise to retain this exemption. CAMRA will be working hard to feed into the Consultation into the Directive as well as persuading the European Commission to adopt changes to support small cider producers.

A huge thanks to everyone who has signed the petition, lobbied their MPs to sign EDM 214, wrote to their MEPs and shared this campaign!
