Please check the group web page). The visit will include a tour by a local historian followed by ‘tea and cake’ (the latter will cost £4.00 / head).

Hand Bells: There are two vacancies but prospective members will need basic musical knowledge. Please contact Maggie Bullen for more details.

Swimming: There are vacancies for 4 new members when the new ‘season’ starts in September. Please contact Dee Lucas for more details.

Vacancies: Most groups have vacancies (contact telephone numbers in the Bulletin and on the pre- / post-meeting slides); there are too many to list here.

General:

1. There will be a Group Leaders Social on Wednesday 25th September between 2pm and 4pm. This will be held at the Bedford Athletic Rugby Ground, Wentworth Drive. GLs please put this date in your diary and if you can’t attend then please send a willing delegate to represent your group.
2. PAT testing of electrical equipment, used in group activities, will take place at the August Athletic meeting.
