The Bedfordshire Bat Group Committee

Created Sept 2011
Updated July 2022


The  whole committee meets three times a year in rooms at Ampthill Baptist Churc. During Covid we are holding meetings via ZOOM

(Any bat group member is welcome to. 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.
