30th October 2019 7pm at Barley Mow, Trefonen

Help us shape the future of your association. Your committee meets regularly throughout the year to organise events for the benefit of our local communities and the wider membership. Support us with your ideas and views so we can provide the assistance you require in the equipment we purchase for members to use, the guest speakers/talks you want, and the suppliers we purchase at discounted prices on your behalf. It all takes organisation which your committee undertakes, the ideas and feedback comes from the membership. Join us for the AGM and help us shape the future as we move into 2020.
