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
