Notice of Annual Prizegiving

We will be holding a short prizegiving ceremony during the Hinchingbrooke Park-O on 26th June.

This is a chance to present the various awards and trophies that would normally be given out at our AGM, when such meetings are in the flesh rather than via a teleconferencing app. The prizegiving will be held at 3:30 pm.

Everyone coming to Hinchingbrooke, is invited to attend the prizegiving and applaud the recipients.
