IMPORTANT- H&C February 2023 Branch Meeting CANCELLED

IMPORTANT- The Hammersmith & City Branch Meeting is CANCELLED on the 1st February 2023.

This is due to lack of available Branch Officials. The Secretary is unavailable, and the assistant Branch Secretary has had to leave London at short notice, and also there is a National Rail Train Drivers strike on the same day.

We wouldn't usually cancel a meeting just because of a different TOC taking strike action, and this decision has not been taken lightly, but combined with the unavailability of Branch Officials we have been left with no option.
