This has been Keith’s fifth term as president in the club’s 35 year history and this will be Paul’s third term in the role.

Due to the problems caused by social distancing rules, the major events organised by the club have been cancelled, namely the Big Band Concert at the Rix Pavilion in September, the Glen Miller tribute concert at Burton Agnes in October, the monthly prize bingo evenings, Santa’s Grotto at Eastfield Garden Centre and the Santa’s sleigh runs around the villages.
