Sadly we are still caught in the grip of this wretched Pandemic; however, the committee remains positive and we are looking forward to 2021.  Although we are unable to confirm the date of our next meeting, be assured, that the March, June and October meetings for 2021 are booked, and we will be ready to go as soon as it is safe to do so.

Our aim, meanwhile - is to stay connected via AT YOUR FINGERTIPS.

Margaret, Elaine and the Committee.
