At a glance: Meetings 2020 - 2021 Season

Norbury  CollieryAs the spread of Covid-19 is not yet under control the committee have decided to cancel all meetings for the rest of this year, September - December 2020, as a precaution. A review of the programme for 2021 will be made nearer the time.

 

Fortunately, three of four speakers from the cancelled September to December 2020 meetings have been booked for the season running from September 2021 to April 2022. The fourth speaker wishes, quite understandably, to consider the situation early next year.
