CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) - Latest 17th March 2020
of you should be aware, yesterday, the Prime Minister and advisors explained
the Coronavirus has accelerated and therefore drastic action should now
be taken, especially by the over -70’s and members of our population
that are ‘At Risk’. The PM said now is the time for everyone
to stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary
travel. We should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres, restaurants and other such
social venues. The committee have therefore decided to CANCEL
this week’s trip to Wicked, the AGM and Lunch are postponed
to a later date. Please be patient, the committee will look at
providing refunds for cancelled events. We have also decided to
cancel all events planned until the end of July and will contact
all members who are booked on them in due course.

committee welcomes ideas and suggestions for events, so if you have any

We have recently had
a number of cheques returned to us as the drawer is in the process of
switching banks. I don’t know what the new bank is telling you but
the result is that a cheque drawn on your old bank will be rejected and
represented by our bank to your new bank. On it’s own this would
not be a problem, however, each time this happens we are charged £4
by our own bank. I am therefore making you aware that you are fully responsible
for any charges we receive from this process.
