Inflation Day 2020
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of Inflation Day 2020.
The situation with Corona virus changes daily and it with everyone’s safety in mind that we have had to make this decision.
As things stand, we do not expect to be able to find another date in 2020 so we shall work on a date and venue for 2021.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
