A Great Day Out in Royal Leaminton Spa

There is still time to get your tickets for this year's West Midland Regional Day in Leamington Spa Saturday June 20th.

Last year we had an excellent day in Stafford.  With the speakers lined up, the competition set and, not forgetting the shopping opportunity, this year is bound to be an interesting and inspiring day.

Nicola Jarvis Blue Birds in progress

It is always a good opportunity to catch up with friends from the branch and region and to meet new people with a common interest.

It will be good to see the competition entries:
