November Meeting Cancelled

Just to confirm that due to transport infrastructure and flood damage in Cockermouth our November meeting is cancelled. We will look to arrange an informal meeting sometime in mid December.

November CAS Meeting

I'm not sure what the status of St Joseph's Church and Hall is following the serious flooding in Cockermouth over the last few days but from the TV footage I've seen, I think it will have been affected so it seems unlikely that our meeting will be going ahead on Tuesday. I'll post more when I know.

My thoughts go out to all affected by the floods. I hope you are all OK.
