IMPORTANT NOTICE 

Cancellation of Lancashire Branch Members Day/AGM

The Lancashire Branch Members Day/AGM due to take place at Ainsdale NNR on Saturday 7th July has unfortunately been cancelled.  

Due to the Southport Air Show taking place on that day and the anticipated increase in traffic, along with the England World Cup match in the afternoon, and a fire at the reserve, we have decided it will be best to postpone the event to a later date.

We will arrange a new date for the Members Day/AGM and send out the details shortly.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience or disappointment that this may cause.

Please could you pass this message on to others who may have been intending to attend the event.
