In 2006 members of the Campaign for Real Ale in the Tendring Peninsula voted to form their own branch. This meant that the area of North East Essex bounded roughly by the area East of the line from Brightlingsea to Manningtree - extending out to Clacton and Harwich would be a new branch of CAMRA separate from the Colchester & North East Essex Branch.
This seemingly unimportant event was, in fact, important to Tendring CAMRA members since they could now campaign more effectively at a local level - one of the guiding principles of our organisation.
So - if you think that Real Ale and Pubs are an important part of British life and in need of promotion, protection and celebration you might find this site right up your alley. Even if you find yourself annoyed, bored or even (heaven forbid) in disagreement with us we hope you'll find snippets or things here to amuse, provoke or otherwise pass the time.
This site is very much a work in progress so please keep checking back!

If your idea of a perfect British summer involves a pint and a pub-garden, then you’re in luck. The Summer of Pub campaign is all about visiting your local – and getting involved is as easy as grabbing a pint! The aim of Summer of Pub is simple – we want more people socialising at the pub this summer.
Tendring CAMRA's collaboration with the Harwich Society lets you find out even more about the ancient hostelries of Old Harwich.
