Upcoming Events

We are back! Meetings will resume with our AGM on 22nd September. We have a full programme for the year but there may have to be changes (sometimes at the last minute) if guidance around Covid -19 changes. Meetings start at 7.30pm and will be in the large hall of the Town Hall upstairs where social distancing requirements can be met.
