Newsletter – May 2024


Wessex Karate Academy is run by a committee which is elected at the Annual General Meeting.  This year’s AGM is to be held via Zoom on Wednesday 22nd May 2022 at 8.30pm.

We are always looking for new committee members and, this year in particular, a new welfare officer.

Please speak to Senseis Peter Thompson or Paul Foot if you want to be involved. But please feel free to attend if you are just interested to see how the club is running.
