Regional Day 2013 (archive)

The information below relates to our 2013 event. 
You can see a short video taken during the morning session at the Regional Day 2013. It's a little shaky as it was done quickly and it was quite busy! Anyway, it gives a flavour of the day, for those who weren't able to come. 

It was a great success as this message left on our Contact Us page says -
"Thank you to the Regional Committee and their sub committee and to West Bridgford branch for such a superb Regional Day last Saturday.
Everything about it was great and I particularly liked the running programme of photos about different branches and to be able to see instantly what pieces had won prizes. Lovely venue, great traders, good branch stalls, superb competition and exhibition entries, interesting speaker and fabulous cake. Thanks again. I look forward to next year."
