There was no West Midland Area Championships during the 2019/20 season due to the Corona Virus outbreak and insufficient meetings being completed. We would like to thank our Area Sponsors for their continued support during this difficult period.
 
The West Midlands Area would like to thank the Harkaway Club for their kind donation towards the purchase of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for all West Midland Area Point-to-Points.
