NOTICES - what is happening next + what members should be doing about it


OUR DIARY for 2020 is shown below. Events earlier in the year (and in previous years) are shown on the Archive page.
* The destinations' web sites normally contain directions on how to get there but, for a few places, the Directions page may be useful.
* The Monthly Meetings are held in the Functions Room (upstairs) at The Temple Bar Inn, Ewyas Harold. Unless they clash with a Bank Holiday, they are always on the 4th Tuesday of a month (which is not always the last Tuesday of the month).
* Speaker's Friends: You will probably find that the Speakers page is useful.

What Members should be doing
* CORONAVIRUS: You will surely be aware of the widespread concerns about the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19. We are not experts on this matter and so expect Members to investigate the matter themselves and take such precautions as they believe to be appropriate. We will attempt to advise Members promptly should we have anything further to report on this matter. We ask all Members to advise one of our Committee Members promptly should they experience symptoms themselves or otherwise have relevant information that they think should be shared with other Members.
* Most if not all of the events identified below as 'UNDER CONSIDERATION' will probably be cancelled or postponed because of the coronavirus. A decision on each will be made in due course.
* Minibreak: With the cancellation of the March Monthly Meeting, 24th March ceased to be a 'target date' for the release of the Invitation Letter. Peter is keeping an eye on the situation and will report on this page when he has any news as to whether or not the Minibreak will go ahead.
* Please do reserve the dates for all of our forthcoming events!
