Message from the Chair
As we enter a new year, I think we can look back and reflect on a year when we encountered a number of difficulties but still manged to have some very successful events.
We can now turn our attention to 2022 and the committee has been working hard to ensure that we can have some exciting prospects, returning to some favourite venues and have some new events to look forward to.
Below are details of those events for the summer months that we have confirmed. For these, Booking Forms will be sent to all members after the Annual General Meeting. Please return them to the event organisers as quickly as possible
Also listed are some events which we are planning for later in the year but which are not yet confirmed. When they are, Booking Forms will be sent out
Annual General Meeting
Our AGM will be held this year on 24th February at Robertsbridge Village Hall starting at 7pm.
We will be providing refreshments so this is a great opportunity to catch up with members that you may not have seen for a while.
This year sees Graeme & Sue Mounsey and Jo Castle stepping down from the committee. We are therefore looking for others to join us. If you are interested, please contact the Secretary for more information
