I thought it time that I gave a heads up on your Committee’s thinking in relation to our current programme and activity.
First of all many thanks to Sue for the continuing newsletter keeping everyone in touch.
I am pleased to tell you that your Committee actually met face to face on Wednesday last- although we were met at the entrance to Liz Littlefair’s barn door with hand sanitiser and led to tables and chairs placed at least 2 metres apart. It was good to talk together although the gloom and need for loudhailers gave an unusual ambiance!
However – that was Wednesday the 29th July and now 3 days later many things have changed yet again in regard to COVID-19.
Our AIM is to get back to meetings as soon as practical – Sue has outlined in the newsletter that our August meeting will once again be an ‘open air’ activity.
The Art Gallery is due to open to the public on 1st September 2020 and our next club night is EXPECTED to take place at the Art Gallery on the 9th September. Our programme will change as needs must but you will be kept fully informed.
On October 14th our club night will be the delayed AGM for 19/20 along with a talk.
Alys will be sending due notifications But you will (May) recall that all nominations for Officer roles are already received- however we will take nominations for Committee up to and on the evening itself.
You may not yet appreciate it but in 2021 the club will celebrate with TWO annual exhibitions! One commencing January and the second will be our more traditional spot commencing November.
As you will appreciate many aspects of normal club life have been affected this year – can I close by assuring you that when we do ‘open’ for business we will be following all the necessary rules and including sanitising, social distancing and face masks or whatever future rules are given – your safety is our concern.
Thank you for your forbearance in these strange times!
Best wishes, stay safe
