Message from Marie 

Please could all Group Leaders send me a short resume of  the group’s activities for the past year. This is on the assumption that, in the  not too distant future, we will have an AGM. They can email or post it.

My email address  is   marie.geary@btopenworld.com    Sandra will give out my physical address if anyone is having IT problems. 

Hope you are all keeping well and finding enough to do in the lockdown.

Best wishes

Marie
