  • Club Meetings for the end of 2019

    The November club meeting on Tuesday 12th November was a very interesting workshop and critique night for attendees. With a good attendance on the night, and a diverse set of trees for discussion and development, there was plenty to take away from the night. A more complete review of the evening can be read on the Club Meetings page.
