Dear supporter,

Happy New Year!

Over the last couple of years, we have all learnt to adapt to the difficult context we find ourselves in. The situation and guidance changes regularly and as a Society, we have tried to make the best out of the circumstances. For some events that has meant there is a risk of them being cancelled or moved online. Let’s hope that gradually life returns to normal soon.

Here is a taste of things to look forward to in 2022. Read on to find out more…
