This charity event will be hosted by Anne Brodie Allan on BBO.

North District wishes to invite anyone who wishes to attend from non affiliated clubs to enter. You do not have to be a subscribed SBU member to take part.

Roadshows next week – invitation from Joan Forsyth


May I cordially invite club and district committee members to a Zoom meeting where our plans for a change to the SBU’s legal status will be presented? After a formal presentation, the audience will be invited to discuss and/or ask questions as they so wish.

There will be three sessions, namely the 11th, 16th, and 17th August, all at 7 pm.

May I also ask that this invitation is circulated widely within your committee, and among those in your club that you feel would be interested. 

Those wishing to attend should contact the SBU Secretary, Carolyn Dempsie, at secretary@sbu.org.uk.

Carolyn will then provide a Zoom invitation.

The meetings are expected to last around an hour, but as long as members want to talk we will be happy to listen.

Joan Forsyth
SBU President
