Public Transport Social - Stony Stratford

E-mail Print PDF
Saturday 20th September

We are having a four pub social in Stony Stratford High Street.
Starting at 16.30 in the Old George, then on to the White Horse (approx 17.15), Fox and Hounds (approx 18.00) and the Vaults Bar (approx 19.00).  The pubs are close together, so there is not a lot of walking.

We are starting early as, during the afternoon, the number 6 bus runs every 20 minutes to Stony Stratford, but becomes an hourly service in the evening.  The number 6 service runs until late.  The last bus back to CMK and Bletchley leaves Stony at 23.16 and at 00.40 to Wolverton.  For the complete time table, please visit

I look forward to seeing you on 20th.

We appreciate that not everyone can get to CAMRA's Members' Weekend. With a view to engaging as many CAMRA members from as many backgrounds as possible, six Super Regional Conferences are once again being run around the country. Members may attend any that they like i.e. you do not have to live within the region where the Conference is taking place. Neither do you have to be an active member of a branch or even consider yourself as active to come along. Everyone is welcome. 
The agenda includes how CAMRA is structured and where you can get help, an update on CAMRA's key campaigns and the choice of two afternoon sessions on saving pubs or activating members. You can find the agenda and details of the six events at: .
The Central Southern Conference is taking place at Oxford Town Hall on Saturday 1st November from noon. The venue is just a 15 minute walk from Oxford Station and promises some great beer.  We also request that you bring you own lunch as we have no catering facilities.
Please register online through the National CAMRA website. Login and select "Go To My Account" followed by the "Interests/Clubs" tab. Under the Interests section you will need to select the "Add" tab and select the Super Regional Conference/s that you wish to attend. Once saved, you will be registered for the event.
