Settlement Players AGM delayed to take place in the hall at the Settlement at 8.00pm on Monday 16th July 2018

I’m afraid that we are postponing the Settlement Players 2018 AGM for a few days.
The reason for this is that England have somehow made it into the semi-final of the world cup and we think that some of you would rather watch the match.

The Settlement Players AGM will now take place in the hall at the Settlement at 8.00pm on Monday 16th July 2018. I hope to see you there.

You never know, England could have won the world cup by then.

If you would like to come along, or get involved with the players then please email contact@settlement-players.org.uk for more details and how you would like to contribute.

Take care

Jim Anderson
