HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND ALL THE BEST FOR THE NEW YEAR
Covid 19 update.
We are still unable to meet at the William Collyn Community Centre but with the vaccines on the horizon there is hope that we will be able to restart on Wednesday 10th March 2021. This is , of course, provisional and we will continue to keep you informed both here and by newsletter in early March.
Meanwhile the business of the AGM in January 2021 cannot be done in the normal way. The chairman’s report and treasurer’s report ( which will be audited as usual) will be sent out by email in January along with 2021 membership cards. The committee will just roll over into the new year.
The new programme will not be printed until we are confident that it will go ahead. The provisional programme is listed below.
Meanwhile stay well and safe.
