Programme: 2021

Following on from our successful online experiences throughout 2020, we remain meeting online during 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Whilst we operate in this way we are aware that visitors / prospective members cannot just drop in to experience what the club has to offer therefore if you wish to join us on any of the nights below, free of charge and commitment, to see what happens and meet the members please do get in touch and we can provide you with the necessary information.

Whilst many of the restrictions imposed due to the Pandemic have been lifted the Committee has been maintaining a close watch on the number of new COVID infections that are prevalent throughout the UK and in particular our own area. Based on the current data and in order to maintain safety standards for our members and visiting speakers/judges, it has been decided that the meetings originally scheduled to take place back at Leasingham Village Hall will revert to online. It is unfortunate that as of the end of August 2021 the number of COVID cases is clearly trending towards an increase in infections and this decision whilst not taken lightly, is as stated based solely around the health and safety of our members and guests. A close watch will be maintained on the current data and meetings will recommence at the Leasingham Village Hall as soon as the situation permits which will hopefully be much sooner rather than later.
