Cancellation of SCDA events in March and April 2021

Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the SCDA events planned for March and April have had to be cancelled. We hope to run the event at Dunbog later in the year, and to reschedule the training event that was planned for March. We’ll keep this website and the SCDA facebook page updated as we learn more about the easing of lockdown restrictions.
