Programme for 2020

    
  

Unfortunately the Coronavirus outbreak has played havoc with our plans for this year.   We were gingerly starting up again at a different base where it was easier to achieve social distancing, when the Rule of Six came in and we had to cancel everything again! And the latest lockdown makes any sort of meeting for the rest of this year look pretty unlikely.
