The situation with regard to COVID19 is still critical with no improvement in sight to justify reconvening our meetings in the foreseeable future.

Therefore the meetings planned for the New Year are cancelled until further notice.  The situation will be reviewed about Easter time.

To all our members and visitors please take care and keep safe.

Although the festive occasion is likely to be different if not difficult for some we would like to extend Seasonal Greetings to our members past and present and wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Healthy year to come.
