Let's get sociable!

Wednesday 29 June 2022, Birmingham

Developments mean that in recent months we’ve combined the West and East Midlands Committees to form one, united Midlands Committee.

So, in celebration, we got sociable and met you all face to face! We’re held a social event on at the newly opened Manahatta Bar in Temple Street, Birmingham. DWF kindly sponsored the event so there was a welcome drink for all on arrival.
