Programme

With the ongoing Corona Virus Pandemic our entire programme has been cancelled. After our successful “virtual” AGM, we are planning to hold some other meetings online, so check back here frequently. We will give as much notice as possible and email notifications will be sent out. If you think you may not be on the email list, please contact Secretary@MKCWC.org.uk 

Please do not travel to the hall unless this page has been updated when the Government has announced that it is safe to travel and meet indoors.
