BWPA regional groups thrive over winter
The BWPA regional groups are a fantastic way to connect with other members in your area. There have been many catch ups and events over the winter months across all of our groups.

The Essex and Hertfordshire group met in November for a pre-Christmas social in Theydon Bois, before continuing the festivities at the BWPA AGM and Festive Lunch in December. They also got together to enjoy a New Year dinner in January and are planning a fly in to Duxford Airfield in early February.
