We are sorry to announce that due to the low numbers of members registering for the May conference, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel it.
We would like to thank everyone again for the various ways through which they agreed to support the event, and we hope that it can be arranged for a future occasion.
We are communicating with all participants to arrange any recompense.
