So the committee have spring into action and already have a huge amount lined up in the calendar. Below is a selection of up and coming events with more in the pipeline - as always head over to WebCollect to book on. All clinic participants will be required to adhere to social distancing practices which clinic organisers will provide before each individual clinic.
We can't wait to see you all soon, of course at an appropriate distance!
Currently summer 2020 camp is still going ahead however due to BRC guidelines no overnight stays are currently allowed and boomerang remains closed so decision will be made nearer the end of the month as lockdown unfolds. We have considered moving it back to 19-20th September and we'll be putting a poll on Facebook to see what everyone's preference is so we can make a decision in favour of those members wanting to attend.
In the meantime we'll keep you all updated over the next few weeks.
Keep safe all,
Your camp commanders

Grid and pole work

With Darren Hegarty being held at Paynes Cottage, Bramshill, Hook RG27 0RG.
