We have now elected the committee for 2022/2023. However, we are still able to co-opt more people, so if you fancy becoming part of the team please contact us.
This year we have reinstated our Bursary. This can be used to cover some or all of the costs of a course of study for work or leisure and will be up to £300. All members are welcome to apply.
Previous bursary recipients spoke at our July meeting about the benefits they received. The deadline for applications will be our September meeting. The winning application will be drawn at the October meeting. The bursary is paid out on receipt of an invoice or receipt from the course organisers.
