Circumstances have not improved enough for us to hold meetings over the next few months.
Government rules do not allow gatherings of groups in the sort of numbers attending our meetings.  Additionally many of us are still shielding or self-isolating.
Our next meetings after the summer break planned for Thursday 17th September to Thursday 10th December have all been cancelled.  We will review the situation towards the end of the year with a view to the possibility of holding meetings in  2021.

Take care of yourselves and keep safe. Hope to see you soon.
Watch this space for more information.
