TCL What's On . . .



If your'e just signed up on the TCL facebook page this does NOT work for getting the e newsletter with info on ALL upcoming events


Dear everyone

- this web page has served us well but has now become very clunky and hard to maintain - we apologise for this and we are currently designing a brand new web set up.

Please bear with us.

If you have particular features you'd like including in the new site please contact us on THANKS

During autumn 2014 it may well be that this old website is not maintained as up to date as it might be as our energies are going into creating the news site. If there is info you need about groups it's best to drop a line to the group contacts directly . . . click here to go to the group page.
