The Club's meetings have been cancelled for the immediate future. It is hoped that it will be possible to reinstate monthly meetings from September 2020.

A provisional calendar has been agreed by the Committee for the rest of this year and for 2021 as detailed below. Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, however, every fixture is subject to confirmation closer to the date specified.
