Christmas Dinner 2018

 

After much discussion it has been decided that the Christmas Dinner proposed for 12th December will not go ahead. There have been various difficulties in finding a suitable venue and many members have various commitments at this time. We hope that a Christmas gathering or some sort may return in 2019 and I welcome any feedback.

 

Rhodes Centre update

 

The future of the Rhodes Centre and the proposals for a new Arts facility in Bishops Stortford are much under discussion. Jan Richardson and I recently attended a meeting arranged by East Herts District Council see link for details
