Important Announcement – 15/3/2020

Dear Club member,

Given the unprecedented and uncertain nature of the current coronavirus outbreak and likely forthcoming Government advice, the Club Committee has reluctantly taken the decision to suspend all Club activity for the moment. There are two main reasons behind this, one being the uncertain availability of speakers and judges for the season but, more importantly, the responsibility we feel towards our older and more vulnerable members, whose health is our prime concern. I will be sending a letter to those of our members who aren’t on email, but please pass this message on if you are in touch.

Therefore there will be no Club meetings until further notice. The Club’s annual Exhibition sadly will also not take place at Bourne Hall, nor will the Club’s AGM on 20th May.

The Committee are staying in regular touch with each other to monitor the situation, and are very keen to reinstate activities as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. I will be in touch to let you know when we are likely to resume our meetings.

In the meantime, we’d love you to continue to contribute to the Club via our Facebook page, where we have monthly challenges. For those of you not on Facebook, if you would like to join (maybe for this purpose only), please let one of the Committee know, and we’ll see if we can find a way to get you online!

If you have any questions about this, please let me know and in the meantime, please keep yourselves and your families as safe as possible.

Debbie Whitton
