COVID-19 – A letter from the Chairman

Dear Members, Friends and Family,

It is with regret and a touch of sadness that I write to you as Chairman to say that due to the Coronavirus, I am afraid that we will not have any meetings in the near future and that our annual rally is cancelled for this year.

I have spoken to Mrs Davies, Red House Farm, and explained that we will not be holding the Rally, and hope everything returns to normal next year.

I know that you all look forward to our meetings, but the situation is out of our control.  This is very disappointing as we have the best time of the year in front of us as we were looking forward to the Spring and Summer.

Please keep an eye on our website, and we will be informing members by phone and word of mouth when this pandemic is over.

I wish you the very best.

Yours faithfully

Peter Watkin – Chairman

Too many people to thank!

Gosh what a day! Can I just say thank you to everyone who made the day so special. The weather held, the car booters, exhibitors, and public followed and in great numbers. Isn’t it wonderful we can enthusiastically celebrate all that is great in living where we do and maintaining our heritage. A special thank you to Mrs Rachel Davis and Family who once again kindly allowed us to stage the event on their property. We are very grateful for their support.
