CORONAVIRUS (Covid-19) - Status 4th November 2020
I hope this update finds you all well and coping in these exceptional circumstances.
We had our regular monthly committee meeting (online via Zoom) on Wednesday (4th November).
As I mentioned in my last update, we had the 2020 AGM in October and the minutes of the AGM and the ‘proposed’ plan for 2021 are available on our Website for you to view.
For your information IBM has called a meeting with all the UK club Chairs to see if we are able to provide some events on-line that might interest our membership. I will let you know in December if anything suitable comes from that meeting.
Let us hope this short lockdown will improve the situation enough for us to celebrate Christmas with our families and loved ones.
Please stay safe and keep healthy.
committee welcomes ideas and suggestions for events, so if you have any
that you would like us to consider for next years programme then please
email them to firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
All places are allocated on a ballot basis, from time to time we do a first come first served, but it will be clearly marked on the Booking form when this applies.
