Junior Summer Clinics post 4th July

Dear Members,

To answer many queries, we do plan to organise more clinics for July, but they won’t be advertised until the week commencing 8th June. The reason for this is to make sure that we continue on the roadmap for coming out of government restrictions from COVID 19.
