Focal Points


The BB&O newsletter, Focal Points, provides a summary of achievements, past and future events and other information from NAFAS, the BB&O Area and our clubs.

Printed copies are normally available for clubs to collect at the Council Meetings in March, June and September.  However the situation regarding future editions remains unclear as long as COVID guidelines limit the possibility of distributing printed material.
