The Bedfordshire Bat Group Committee

Created Sept 2011
Updated April 2017


The  whole committee meets three times a year in rooms at Ampthill Baptist Church. (Any bat group member is welcome to attend. Let Jude know so  that she can ensure enough cake). Various subgroups meet informally as the need arises.

Membership of the committee is by election at the AGM. Interested parties can also be co-opted during the year.

It simply indicates who to contact with ideas, suggestions and queries on particular things, and shows the (constantly negotiable) spread of regular tasks among the Committee.
