Posted March 17th, 2020 at 4:01 pm in Meetings by Mike Daniels

In the light of the further measures announced yesterday to deal with the virus, all of us have a role to play in trying to lessen the impacts of the pandemic. Last week we cancelled the AGM until later in the year, and we have now recommended that Indoor Meetings and Field Trips should be postponed for the foreseeable future. Whilst we do not want to have a situation of overkill, we do think that prudent actions we take today will help to keep people safe and healthy now and in the weeks and months to come.
