OTLEY Pub Club is seeking new committee members.

The group needs to fill the roles of treasurer and website engineer and also needs some general committee members to help with organisational and news gathering tasks.

An appeal for new recruits features in the latest edition of the club’s newsletter which can be read at www.otleypubclub.co.uk.

It says: “Otley Pub Club is putting out a plea - We need more committee members.

“The only qualifications you need are an interest in Otley’s wonderful pub scene.

“Please just send an e-mail to info@otleypubclub.co.uk and we can arrange to have a socially distanced chat.

“Ask your friends and family too.”

Urging everyone to enjoy the ‘last vestiges of summer’, it adds: “Drink responsibly and please observe social distancing rules/track and trace methods at all of our lovely pubs.”

Set up to celebrate the 20-odd pubs currently operating in Otley, the club has produced a Historic Otley Ale Trail which includes details of the town’s ‘lost’ inns.
