Bourton & District

Events

The Club's meetings resumed live this September 2021. This was very well attended by current & new members. Please check for updates before attending any future meetings, due to ongoing Covid Restrictions. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. ALSO, check our latest COVID guidelines using the link on the right.

A provisional calendar has been agreed for 2021 by the Committee and the "Dates for your Diary" programme is given below. Please check this regularly, as this is subject to changes & updates being made. Although events for 2022 have been added, these have not been agreed or confirmed and are therefore subject to change too.
