Despite the last newsletter saying the AGM would be on 10th October at Tatton Park, it has of course been cancelled. New date is January 30th 2021 at the same venue.
A copy of the Chairman’s letter to this effect:
Julie Suffolk, our enthusiastic member and highly efficient Secretary for many years, died this morning. She has been ill for five years, and modern medicine has given her extra time from the initial diagnosis. I am sure all our members will join me in sending our heartfelt sympathy to her husband John, and also to Steve Carpenter who has managed her Backforrest Flock for several years.
