Winter Social: 25th January 2022 Cancelled

We have decided to cancel, or at least postpone, the forthcoming Winter Social event. We'll consider whether to hold it a little later in the year, and let you know; and of course we do hope to re-stage the Summer Social which was such a success last year.
