Updating Events 2024

Annually, the Amenity Forum organise Updating Events aimed at keeping the sector abreast of pertinent issues. The Updating Events for 2024 are geared towards ensuring that the Amenity Forum effectively identifies concerns and challenges within the sector, while also delivering current information on legislation and OCR updates.

Our first event for 2024 was held in Wales on 11 April. This event was kindly hosted by Complete Weed Control and held at Celtic Manor.
