A man who was a stalwart for the Campaign for Real Ale has died.
Rodney Booth, 71, was a familiar figure at events organised by the campaign group in both Huddersfield and Halifax.
And he thought nothing of picking up his bus pass and travelling miles from his home in Greetland to enjoy a pint or two at local pubs.
Mr Booth has spent many years working at the Croslee factory in Hipperholme.
He joined CAMRA many years ago and was a long-standing member of the Halifax & Calderdale branch.
CAMRA spokesman Bob Tomlinson said; “He was a great help at the annual Huddersfield Oktoberfest beer festival and was often to be seen helping behind the bar, or setting up and taking down the equipment”.
Among his favourite pubs in the area were The Sportsman and The Star in Huddersfield, The Commercial at Slaithwaite, The Refreshment Rooms at Sowerby Bridge and Brambles at Holmfirth.
His funeral takes place at 10.30am on January 19 at Parkwood Crematorium, Elland.
