 Covid-19

Updated 23/7/20 18:00

To state the obvious, none of our activities are currently taking place.  In mid-March we cancelled everything up to mid-May.  At the time that seemed a long way off, but it is now increasingly likely to be (well) into the future before we can resume anything - but we are discussing ideas.

Annual General Meeting

The AGM due to take place on 7th May was postponed.  It was provisionally rescheduled to September, but has now been rescheduled, again, to 1st October or 8th October.  A decision on which date, if at all, will be made nearer the time.  If we are still not able to hold it then, it will be on the first feasible first Thursday of the month thereafter.  Meanwhile, the current Committee will remain in place, and continue to operate as normal with 'virtual' meetings by email.

President's Reception and 100th anniversary

We have reviewed the President's Reception, and the need to plan well in advance for this special year.  The venue has agreed to defer our booking to next year. So, this event will now not take place on 26/9/20 and is rescheduled to 25/9/21.  Something to look forward to in the long term!

St Andrew's Lunch

Scheduled for 27th November.  A decision on whether to proceed will be made nearer the time.

Burns Dinner

Scheduled for 23rd January.  A decision on whether to proceed will be made nearer the time.

Scottish Dancing

We are now on our Summer break.  We are monitoring guidance from RSCDS on when and how we can resume dancing.  We are due to restart - hopefully! - on 14th September.  Further details on the Dance Class website.

Walks

As at 20/7/20 our regular monthly walks are suspended.  But we are now restarting short walks on an informal basis.  These 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 are hoping to still hold the usual Members Evening in early 2021.
