Announcement by the RBSTNI Committee Monday 6th July 2020.

The RBST NI Support Group Annual Show and Sale
After careful consideration, and in line with RBST policy around Covid 19, it is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the Show and Sale for this year.
We have been monitoring public health and government advice and were hoping that it may be possible to run the event and build on the success of 2019.  Unfortunately this is not possible.  We remain grateful for all the support we receive, but public safety and that of Committee members and our volunteers is paramount.
Plans are already underway for 2021, but in the meantime, stay safe everyone and we look forward to welcoming you next year.
All the best.
