In the unprecedented circumstances of our cancelled championship show and the UK Covid-19 lockdown, we have had to make alternative arrangements to post the yearbooks.

Our yearbook printer has posted the UK books, 2nd class, Thursday 9 April… so, hopefully, they will be with members week ending 17 April.

Those for Europe and Worldwide are being delivered to Sandy Waterton Tuesday 14 Apr – and will be packed and posted asap.

Any queries to Sandy please. sandywaterton@gmail.com
