Coronavirus measures

17th May 2020   

We regret that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel all of our events in May and June. Most of these will, we hope, be rescheduled for later dates either this year or next.

At present we are not planning any events for July and August but we hope to resume some events in September, all being well.
