*** Please note that due to the latest government advice on the Covid 19 virus we have made the difficult decision to cancel all of our own events and activities until at least June 2020. We will check the latest Public Health England advice over the next few months and keep everyone updated via this page, our news page and social media accounts. Please note that all events listed on these pages are subject to last minute changes though. We will update all BDS run events but for all non BDS run events please contact the organiser for details. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused.***
