2020 is a new decade and we are hoping to arrange as many events as we can that are interesting for our Members. Manning the Stands is labour intensive and so if you can help out please put your name forward. Extended Range days, tuition, best practice, interesting Speakers. Tell us what you would like us to arrange. Come to the AGM and have your say.

After the AGM a list of Committee Members will be published with relevant contact numbers on the Branch web page.

Forthcoming Events for 2020.
Some Events and dates have already been arranged. The elected Committee after the AGM will finalise the year's programme and it will be posted on the Branch Page. Additional items may be added during the year. If you have any suggestions for interesting subjects or Lectures please contact one of the Committee. With the demise of the D.I., it may be that the Branch can step in and arrange Best Practice events in the future. Some subjects are already being discussed.


To save our branch funds and to keep you updated with events if we do not have your current email address please would you let us know?
