Bourton & District

Events

The Club's meetings have moved on-line for the time being. We hope that in the July / August of 2021 we will be able to reinstate “live” monthly meetings (depending on government restrictions). Until such time the meetings listed below are subject to change. Please check for updates before attending. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Links to the on-line meetings will be emailed to members a couple of days prior to each event.

As soon as we are able to restart live meetings, members will be emailed (or in the case of non email members a letter will be sent).

A provisional calendar has been agreed for 2021 by the Committee and the "Dates for your Diary" programme is given below.

Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, however, every fixture is subject to confirmation closer to the date specified.
