Penkridge Events Diary
Please send details
of any event you would like to publicise, by email to the
(webmaster at penkridge.org.uk) or phone him on 712733. We would suggest you do not publicise ordinary group meetings for your members,
but stick to events where the general public are invited and welcome. You
could be embarrassed if half of Penkridge turn up to a Committee Meeting!
And the webmaster will be embarrassed if he ever gets a date wrong - so please
tell me. Please always check with the organisers
of the events, just in case dates have changed
and we haven't been informed - but we will do our best
to make sure the information is accurate and up-to-date.
We would strongly advise all Penkridge organisations to include their major events in this Diary so that others do not organise an event that may clash.
