Dear Members and Supporters,

As you know, the usual BFoE AGM was postponed back in June due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We held a Members’ Meeting on 13th July to provide you with an update on what the organisation had been doing and present the Annual Report for 2019/20 and we had hoped to hold a face to face meeting to complete the formal AGM business in the autumn.

As the lockdown and social distancing restrictions have continued, we have decided to hold a brief formal AGM on Monday 14th December by zoom and we would like to invite you to attend and to stay on-line afterwards for a festive social.

If you want to attend the meeting and social you must register by 5pm on Friday 11th December to receive the zoom link and papers!

Richard Bickle
Society Secretary
