Regional Conference for the Eastern Counties 18 May 2016, Chelmsford- Now Cancelled
The planned South East Eastern Counties regional conference to be held at Chelmsford Museum on 18th May has been cancelled. These meetings are interesting and useful for members of Friends groups so it’s hoped to re-schedule the day another time. All Friends are encouraged to attend these events.
The two latest editions of the BAFM South East Eastern Counties Regional Newsletter ‘News from the East’ for March and April 2016 are available here, but note the application forms for the May event are now redundant. The March edition no 18 contains a taste of how useful these meetings can be with a review of February’s meeting at Kings Lynn.
