LFFA Annual General Meeting

Our AGM was held on Monday 8th February. Due to the current covid19 restrictions, we couldn't meet at our spiritual home of the Black Bitch Tavern. This AGM saw us embrace ZOOM with reports from office holders presented and approved, feedback given on the year past and the discussion of possibilities for the year ahead.

The evening saw stalwart member Clare step down from the committee. We thank Clare for her commitment over many many years. The 2020/2021 committee comprises: Christine, Jonathan, Murdie, Neil, Rab, Robert, Steph and Susan.  We would very much like to add new faces to our committee and so if you wish to know more about us, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

We hope to bring you some sort of festival in September (even an online one) and we'll keep you updated over the coming months.
