Obituary 9 December
It is with deep sadness we report the loss of one time East London member Barbara Ayton. Babs was always at our Pigs Ear Festivals as well as the beer tents we set up on the Isle of Dogs and the IWA events at Clapton and what is now Mile End Park. I also remember her serving at the Great British Beer Festival in Brighton and no doubt there were others. She an I were part of the CAMRA Spratts darts team. She regularly joined in the annual Pete Roberts Ramble before she moved to Bradford and married Mike. Our thoughts are with Mike and her son Tony.

CAMRA supports well-run pubs as the centres of community life and believe their continued existence play a critical social role in UK culture.
