Bexhill RAFA club wins CAMRA award

An East Sussex community club known for its beer festivals, jazz night and an impressive range of RAF memorabilia has won a national award.

The Albatross Royal Air Forces Association Club in Bexhill-on-Sea beat more than 28,000 clubs across the UK to be named the Campaign for Real Ale's Club of the Year.

Cheltenham Motor Club, the Kinver Constitutional Club in Staffordshire and Orpington Liberal Club were runners up.

Judge Keith Spencer said the Albatross offered a wide range of beer and cider but that was only part of the story.

"The bar staff and steward are part of a bigger team that makes the Albatross the epitome of what a community asset should be," he said.

"Everyone connected with the club ensures the welcome is warm for everyone who enters."
