2019 EVENTS DIARY (Also on Forthcoming Events)
It si the general consensus that 2019’s reunion should be at the Barnsdale Lodge Hotel judging by this years attendance. We were in a bigger room and the whole evening was a great success, with many senior members attending. Comments to me please, Clive.
