Dates for your Diary

First of all, many thanks to the 27 people that came to the 10th August meeting, a very good turn out for the holiday period. It was also good to see several new faces and, judging by the discussions that went on after the meeting, it was a very useful event. Our third and final meeting of 2019 will...
