Dear Members,

It is with much regret that I have to announce that the proposed AGM on 19 October preceding the SPSBS Sale at Worcester has had to be cancelled due to recent Covid19 guidelines. All SPSBS Members will have a letter from me posted first class yesterday and I hope they arrive today or at worst tomorrow. Both the Sale and the Show before will continue as arranged with full Covid precautions in place, the Pre Sale Show will be at 10.00 and will be followed by the Sale at the advertised time. Nothing has changed except the lack of AGM following discussion with OSCR, the governing body of Scottish Charities of which we are one. We have a dispensation for being unable to hold a 2020 AGM, in common with many other Scottish Charities. Even with no AGM I do hope that as many of you as possible will be able to come to Worcester, I am looking forward to seeing many friends, both old and new, there with the lovely ponies I have seen photographed on Facebook.

McCartneys Auction House have worked hard to put this sale on and after the successes at Lerwick and Aberdeen sales I hope we all have an equally good day next Monday.

With thanks for your patience and understanding.

Anne De La Warr

(President SPSBS)
