All previously notified events have been cancelled due to the CoVid19 lockdown
As stated in the last branch newsletter, the 2020 AGM was postponed from July until 7th October. With the general relaxation of Covid-19 regulations during the summer, we had every expectation that the AGM could continue as planned. On 18th September, Rick Rutter, Chris Blick and I visited the Carlton Club with the view to confirming that it was possible, and if so, what measures would be necessary for us to be in compliance with government guidelines. These were agreed with the Carlton Club.
However, since then, there has been a very significant increase in cases of people being tested positive resulting in further restrictions being imposed; in these circumstances you may be questioning whether you should attend anyway.
Last Tuesday we had an e-mail from the Secretary of the National Committee, Stephen Weall, saying that AGM's could be postponed again or cancelled. With this in mind and taking into account the Covid-19 situation, the Branch Committee has decided to cancel the AGM. Any actions such as reports or re-election of committee members will be published in the next newsletter. Meanwhile, if you have issues which you wish to have aired in the newsletter, please let me know.
We hope you are all keeping well.
