Kingsbridge Cancelled

With Avian Flu now confirmed in Louth in Lincolnshire I doubt anyone will be surprised to hear that DEFRA has as as a precaution banned all gatherings. 

Do look on the DEFRA website to ensure you are familiar with current guidance and to check you are undertaking the requirements.
