Penkridge Events Diary  

Please send details of any event you would like to publicise, by email to the Webmaster (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.
