The Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation with over 191,000 members (March '18) run by an elected, unpaid national executive and backed by a small core of professional staff. It speaks for people everywhere by fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, attempting to improve quality and choice, and trying to ensure pub standards are raised.
The East & Mid Surrey branch (formerly the Reigate & Redhill branch) was founded on the 10th August 1975 at the height of the keg revolution. Our inaugural meeting was at the Nutley Hall, Nutley Lane, Reigate, Surrey. We changed the name to be the East & Mid Surrey branch at the 1998 AGM as we thought that described the area covered better. The boundaries have changed several times, the last time in early 2009. The branch currently stretches over to the Kent border, down to the Sussex Border and across to Alfold. The main towns in the area are Warlingham, Caterham, Oxted, Lingfield, Horley, Redhill, Reigate, Banstead, Dorking and Cranleigh.
