Health and Safety:
Masks and negative LFTs are not mandatory, but if you're feeling unwell, please do not attend. Please exercise best judgement on your condition before coming.

If anyone has any first aid experience, I'd welcome volunteers to be the nominated first aider (I'm responsible for nominating a first aider in the venue T&Cs)

If you need to get into contact with me, it would be better to do so via Facebook, as I'm not very active on this forum anymore.
