  • Woolhope Club Field Meetings 2021

    It will come as no surprise to members that our Spring Annual Meeting, scheduled to take place on 13 March 2021, will not take place. The Club committee had hoped that Government restrictions on meetings would have been eased by that time, but the guidelines published on Monday indicate otherwise. This gradual easing of restrictions over a period of months, and the limit on the size of meetings, will have an impact on the earlier meetings in the programme of field meetings planned for the summer, and the effect of this is being assessed. Details of the summer programme of field meetings will be circulated with the next Club newsletter, due early in April.
