No change to 8th November Amateur 10-dance NRE

 The Amateur 10-dance NRE on 8th November will now NOT be moving to 10th October. Following the realisation that changing the NRE to the London Championships created problems for our members, the 2 Richards have returned it to their original event at Nantwich. We thank them for their consideration and hope that it gets well supported. Apologies for any confusion caused.
