Sad news. I guess internet resources have played a part in this...

2019 marked the 40th anniversary of the Pendle & Burnley Branch but, sadly, 2020 will probably be remembered as the year this Branch closes.At the January Committee Meeting members decided by a near unanimous majority to propose that the branch should close at the endof 2020. Our dedicated and hardworking committee have served for many years, but due to personal commitments, health problems and advancing years it was felt that rather than limp along for the next few years the time is now right to make a clean break.This decision was not taken lightly but falling membership numbers anda lack of newer, younger members to fill committee places – a problem many societies now face - has placed an increasing burden on the existing committee.Therefore, as we can’t see this situation altering in the near future, it isreluctantly proposed that the Branch closes in December 2020. Speakers have been booked to the end of the year and we will carry onwith the normal programme until Christmas at which point the branch will be wound up.
