CANCELLED – South Central Regional meet-up – CANCELLED
Mar 22 @ 13:00 – 15:30

CANCELLED

You will all be aware of the news reports on how the ‘virus’ is being handled across the country and the way that advice given only yesterday has altered significantly in that period not only from the Chief Medical Officer but also the Government.

Therefore for the health and safety of all,  I have taken the decision to postpone this event to later in the year when we, as a country, return to some form of normality.

CANCELLED

Ladies and Gents of South Central…

I would like to get together as many of you as possible in one place to introduce myself and to meet as many of you as possible. Also ‘cos it says I should in the branch bylaws :lol: .

Therefore I would like to propose the above date, 22nd March, Tidworth RBL for 13:00.. Somewhere central ‘ish to the region.

A good opportunity for you to let me and the committee know where you think the branch should be heading.

I may even provide some sarnies.

Also a chance to ask questions of others.

June Meeting for Wiltshire
Jun 2 @ 19:30 – 21:30

Good news at last.

The Wyvern Club in Devizes has confirmed that we can hold a meeting at 20:00 hrs on Wed 2nd June. It will most likely be in the main room with tables limited to 6 persons.

As this will be our first formal meeting for a long time, I will be publishing an agenda in due course. If you have anything that you would like to include on the agenda, please let me know at least 2 weeks before the meeting.

I would like us to concentrate our efforts this year on strengthening the Wiltshire Branch and fully supporting the RBL as much as possible, whilst also having more Ride-outs and social gatherings on a regular basis.

2020 was a very bad year for us all, but I believe that we, as a group, can come together and support each other going forward.

Regards,
Mal
