A message from the Society Chair, Julie Wild.

“Hello Everyone,

I trust that you are all having a good summer & hope that you or your loved ones have not been too adversely affected by the pandemic. We are certainly living through some strange times.

I am sure that it will not come as a surprise to know that we have decided to cancel this years summer excursion to the silk museum & to Buxton. Mike has secured this visit to take place on the same weekend next year – dates to be confirmed. This is the first time we have had to cancel our annual summer trip – to my knowledge, I’m sure those of you who have been in our society longer than me, can put me right. The decision to cancel is, as you will agree, the right one; your safety & health is most important to us.
Those of you who have left a deposit will be able to have a refund , alternatively you could leave the deposit to secure your place next year. If you could let our honourable treasurer, Mr. Robert Davies, know your preference.

We are very sad to say that all our meetings this Autumn, from September through to November have been cancelled. This was a unanimous decision by all members of the committee who thought it improbable that many members would be present even if the lectures were able to take place. Our plan at the moment is that these will be re-arranged for sometime in 2021 whenever that will be possible, and all our speakers have very kindly agreed to this. Please watch the website for further notifications.
Until then, please stay safe & healthy & enjoy the summer.”

Kind regards
Julie Wild

If you know a member of the society who may not see this notice, please pass on this information to them.

Quite a number of members and the majority of the committee did, however, express a wish that the Christmas AGM and members’ social should take place as usual. This will therefore be held on December 11th, as listed in the membership card, and will hopefully be at our usual venue – St. Michael’s Church.
