AGM

We have rescheduled our postponed CSSA AGM 2020 as a virtual AGM to be held by Zoom from 1400 on Saturday 21st November 2020. A virtual Special General Meeting will immediately follow the AGM to consider proposed changes to the constitution. A face-to-face component of the meeting appears unlikely under COVID-19 restrictions on groups as they stand as we go to press (10th September). Should a face-to-face meeting become possible, this will be held at Littleton SC, TW17 0NF. For details monitor this page.

Face-to-face places, if any, will be allocated in order of registration.
