Virtual Picnic by Zoom

on Saturday 22nd May 2021 at 2pm till 3pm

(The Link will be emailed to MEMBERS ONLY* on mercredi 22 mai 2021 )

Sadly, due to the ongoing Covid restrictions the CFB picnic cannot be held as a public gathering in Wallace Park Lisburn as we had planned in our original 2020-2021 programme. Instead, we propose a short virtual picnic by Zoom on Saturday 22nd May 2021 at 2pm till 3pm. 
Looking forward to seeing you on 19th and 22nd May.

Prenez soin de vous et de vos proches,

À bientôt,
