April 2020

It is with regret, and due to the current restrictions with respect to the Coronavirus outbreak, that the Annual General and Branch Meeting due to take place on the 15th April have been cancelled.

The decision has been taken that the officers will remain in post until such time as the Annual General Meeting can take place and will occur as soon as possible, once the restrictions are lifted.

It is our intention to distribute a newsletter to members as soon as practicable and we would ask that any contributions are sent to Valerie Schicker at Please submit contributions on any interesting topic you feel you would like to, as the purpose of the newsletter is to provide communication at a time of social distancing.
