Society Rendezvous & Exhibition 2021

Our usual Winter Rendezvous had been scheduled for Sunday 7th February 2021 but with the present restrictions arising from Covid we have regrettably decided that it is not possible to go ahead and the event is cancelled. 

However in the hope that some normality may have returned we have made a provisional booking for a Summer Rendezvous on Sunday 22 August 2021 at Lenham Community Centre. 

 This late summer timing will give us the opportunity to review the position in early spring when, with winter ending, the nationwide situation should be clearer. Also clashes with other exhibitions are less likely in August and many of our members tend to be away at other times. 

We will keep members up to date as and when there is further information but if in meantime you have any comments or questions then please contact Roger Allen – email or telephone 01689 871604
