“Pub of the Year” & “Club of the Year” 2016-2017 – Voting now open.

Message to  Sunderland & South Tyneside CAMRA Branch Members from our Chairman

You’ll shortly receive a letter in the post & an email via the CAMRA Comms Tool if we hold your correct email address. It is to make you aware that the voting website for Sunderland & South Tyneside “Pub of the Year” & “Club of the Year” 2016-2017 is now open. Voting will close at midnight Friday 27th January 2017


This is part of that letter:

 Voting online:

The voting website can be found at http://evp.sst.camra.org.uk/

In order to logon you will need your CAMRA membership number (available from your membership card) & the password you use to logon to all official CAMRA websites. You should note however that for security purposes CAMRA HQ expired all existing passwords on 7th October this year so if you have not recently logged on you will first need to visit the CAMRA members website at https://members.camra.org.uk & setup a new password.

Once you have access to the voting site you can vote for upto three pubs & upto three clubs from the drop down menus. {You must vote for at least one pub before your vote will be accepted.}

Once you have made your choice you will be offered on screen a chance to review & change your choice or exit without submitting a vote. However once you have submitted your vote you will not be able to log back on & make any change.

The choice of pubs on the ballot sheet is limited to those pubs the branch has entered into the 2017 edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. (22 pubs) The choice of clubs is made up of all clubs within the branch area that serve cask ale. (6 clubs)

I encourage you to take part & vote online. Sunderland & South Tyneside branch enjoy one of the highest voter turnouts nationally for this competition & we wish to continue in that direction. Also despite the fact the branch now has over 600 members we find that this vote can be incredibly close so your vote(s) can make a difference to the final positions.


If you have any problems or concerns with the online vote please contact the branch ballot returning officer on evote@sst.camra.org.uk You can also contact this email address if you are a branch member & have not received your letter by 3rd January.

Any technical issues with the voting website can be referred to the branch webmaster on webmin01@sst.camra.org.uk

Thank you for your votes.


Michael Wynne

Chairman, Sunderland & South Tyneside CAMRA.
