Apology for the disruption to our meetings timetable but due to government restrictions and guidelines meetings are cancelled until further notice.


The government has said that decisions on lifting or partial lifting the current restriction can hopefully be made in May/June we may be able to give more definitive details on our shows and meetings at this time, in the meantime please keep well and look after yourselves.
