Somerset & Bristol Branch AGM 2020

Saturday 28th November at 2 pm

Our members will not be surprised to hear that we are unable to hold our regular members' day in November. However, the committee have decided to proceed with the official business of the branch AGM that is normally held as part of that day – albeit in a slightly different format this year.

The AGM will be held online using Zoom (a cloud based video conferencing software).  The meeting is open to all branch members, however we will require you to register in advance so that we can send you instructions nearer the time to be able to join the online meeting. 

It is likely that we will be limited to 100 participants so please register as soon as possible.

If you would like to join and participate in the AGM, please email Sue Davies, our Membership Secretary (click to send email)
