The Official Point-to-Point Website for the Wessex Area

UNFORTUNATELY, AS SO MANY OF THE SCHEDULED MEETINGS WERE NOT RUN, NONE OF THE OFFICIAL WESSEX AREA AWARDS WILL BE PRESENTED, AND THE PLANNED AWARDS EVENING AT TAUNTON HAS BEEN CANCELLED

It is hoped that the Larkhill Awards and some other individual course presentations will still go ahead - those involved will be notified
