Midlands and Anglia Group
(Please note the name
change for this group)
For South Lincolnshire, The
Wash, Peterborough and Huntingdon - even as far as Norwich and Bury
St Edmonds for a couple of members !
The Postcodes covered are:
LE, PE, LN, CB, NR and IP
We do not have a normal
regular meeting place as we cover such a wide geographic area. During the
main events season we aim to tell each other about our local shows, spread
the word and meet at events. We have tried to organise a start or end of
season lunch meet, but to date the weather has been against us – we
continue to try !
If you live within or even
close to this Region please contact Conan Lewis on 01778 590027 Conan.Lewis@nsn.com
or Pete Foster on 01406 363679 firstname.lastname@example.org to
register your interest.
For all events I have included the website address so you can find out more about the
nature of the event and make your own entry arrangements.
Please let me know by phone or email if you plan to go to any so that if we have quite a
number I can arrange with the organisers for us to have our own space together. I will not
be at all the events, but I will coordinate group parking if possible.
Prioritised Events are shown in red – please try to come to these
If I have missed one of your local events please let me know and I will add it to the list.
