It will come as no surprise that we have made the decision to cancel our April meeting and upcoming summer events. So far, we are holding out for normal life again by September but we will have to wait and see. For any events advertised on this news site which are not hosted by us, please contact the organising group, but it’s pretty safe to assume they are not going ahead.
Keep well …
