 Covid-19

Updated 28/11/20

In mid-March we cancelled all activities.  We have recently tried to resume a few events, but with restrictions increasing again we have now cancelled all activities and functions for the remainder of 2020 and into early 2021.  We have held one informal walk, and hope to run a few more soon.  Other activities including the Dance Class remain suspended for the foreseeable future.

Administration and Annual General Meeting

After postponement from 7th May, the AGM was finally held on 5th November, online by Zoom.  The Officers and Committee were re-elected.  The next AGM is scheduled for 5th May 2021, either an actual meeting or online depending on circumstances at that time.

The Committee continue to operate (almost) as normal.  A virtual meeting by email was held in March and an actual (garden!) meeting in August.  Since September we are now holding monthly online meetings by Zoom.

President's Reception and 100th anniversary

This was cancelled.  We have rescheduled to 25/9/21.  Something to look forward to in the long term!

Burns Dinner

We decided on 29th October to cancel the Burns Dinner, which would have been on 22nd January.

Scottish Dancing

It is expected that our Dance Class will not resume until well into the future.  Evergreen Hall is likely to remain closed for the remainder of 2020.

Walks

We have suspended our programme of regular monthly walks, and likely to remain so for the remainder of Winter 2020/21.  We did run one informal walk, with the intention of doing more, but this will now have to wait until the November lockdown is over.  When we do resume, walks will NOT follow the usual pattern of dates.  Details will be communicated to our regular walkers by email, and NOT displayed here.  If you wish to be included, please let our Secretary know by using the email link on the Contacts page (or phone); note this is a SEPARATE mailing list from general circulations.  More details on the Walks page.

Talks evenings

These talks were already under review.  We will not be holding any talks through the 2020-21 Winter season.  We were hoping to still hold the usual Members Evening in early 2021, but increasingly less likely now.
