ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS

THE JUNE CONVENTION 2021 It is unfortunately my duty to post yet another disappointing message regarding our Blackpool conventions. As you will all know, the March convention was cancelled some time ago. CONVENTIO At a recent committee meeting it was decided that due to the ongoing covid crisis and the roadmap timetable issued by the government, the society has no choice but to cancel the June convention as well. Obviously I need not tell you how disappointing this is although it will come as no suprise to any of us. The committee felt it only right to inform you all of this situation now, thereby avoiding further disappointment later on. On a brighter note, it looks as though things are gradually improving nationally so fingers crossed a convention will come our way before long. Stay safe and healthy and lets make most of the down time to improve our playing! Best regards, Steve Langford

Chairman - THE GEORGE FORMBY SOCIETY
