Awards and Social

Due to the disruption of last year and the move to an online format for this year’s AGM we are changing the format slightly to allow us to celebrate the work done by all our members. Further details will be sent out to explain how you can nominate a member for recognition. We will also be having some guest speakers. Further details will be published with the final agenda.

Buffet and bar

This is entirely up to you! Hopefully you will be able to make a special event of it in the comfort of your own home.

Please join us and make this rather unusual AGM one to remember.

Bob Lawler, Club Secretary
