We offer our sincere congratulations to them all and commiserations to those who were unsuccessful. In particular, PICO managed to gain 5 out 5 in the Distinction level. Many applicants were present to collect their respective badges and have their group photo taken. I hope to receive the certificates ready to give out at the AGM/PDI Championships in February.

Many of you may be aware we are holding another PAGB/APM Advisory Day on Sunday 6th September, once again at the Foxton Village Hall. The advance notification poster is on the website. Again we will be pleased to welcome the PAGB/APM team coming down from Scotland and Lancashire to offer their advice and share their experience.

The Spring Adjudication is almost full, only a few spaces for Credit being available, D and M are closed. This event is being hosted by the MCPF and will be held in Rednal, Birmingham, reachable in a day for many of those who wish to attend from the EAF.
