BMS Field Events
Field Meetings and Covid-19 Field
Due to the current pandemic BMS field meetings have been cancelled. This includes the Group Leaders Meeting due to be held in June.
The coronavirus pandemic will inevitably affect our field events and recording programme planned for this year. Current government advice is to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary and avoid contact with anyone other than those you live with. The BMS website should be consulted for details of any cancellations or changes to planned events.
Field enthusiasts should ensure that any recording they carry out takes account of government guidance or restrictions in place at the time to ensure their safety and well-being and that of their communities.
Group Leaders' Meeting 2020
The GLM planned for the weekend of 26th to 28th June 2020 at Northern College, Barnsley, has been cancelled due to concerns and uncertainty regarding the coronavirus outbreak.
