2020 Competition Update

 Update May 2020


As a Society we have left a decision about the competition up until this point.  However, it has been decided that due to the current situation with COVID 19 and the situation, unfortunately showing no signs of improvement, we have decided not to go ahead with this years competition. This is such a shame but we need to ensure the safety of everyone involved and that is our main priority. We are sure that you will agree and this news will, no doubt come as no surprise. 

We would like to thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you in the future.  For the time being we have decided to keep the date for the dinner in the diary, which is Friday 22nd January, and potentially hold a slightly different event. However, this will be decided upon nearer the time so please keep checking social media and the website.  In the meantime, all the best to you, your families and your businesses.
