Breaking News

Dear BLB member,

Owing to the recent restrictions on gatherings by the President and the high incidence of the virus, we have decided to postpone our AGM and next walk, which was due to take place on 5th September in Mokolodi.  I repeat: there will be no walk on 5th September owing to Government restrictions.

So, what next?   There is a public holiday on 1st October, which means that some members may be away for that long weekend.  Depending on what unfolds before then, we will EITHER have our AGM after a walk on 10th October or do it by Zoom meeting on a date to be announced.  Obviously we would prefer to hold the meeting where we can socialise with one another.Read more.
