Our full programme for the weekend will be confirmed soon, but our agenda will reflect on what's been achieved over the past two years as well as looking forward to our centenary in 2023. You will gain an insight into our governance, a chance to review our accounts, recieve any reports and of course, socialise and get to know fellow members of the Association. Additional activities such as tours of the grounds and chalet will also be on offer, as well as a special complimentary lunch on Sunday afternoon.
