BCA'37 Notices #2

This year is the 80th Anniversary of the arrival of almost 4,000 children accompanied by teachers, helpers and priests.

We are involved with a varied series of events around the UK and in the Basque Country commemorating the 80th Anniversary. Unless otherwise mentioned, all the events are open to the public. We hope that you will be able to attend one or more of them and look forward to meeting you there.
