All the main events

To enjoy its full technical, social and financial benefits, the Members’ only pages of this site including the on-line forum and Technical Library, and to take part in Club events you need to join – either via this website or by calling 0345 6032660. Here’s a brief summary of the Club’s recent and forthcoming activities and its main benefits.
CLUB EVENTS and OPERATION
Our Club continues to be active during these ‘strange times’ with normal administrative functions, and some unusual and interesting events. Catherine and Mel are socially distancing and can stay safe by working at home. Phone calls are forwarded from the office, they have access to the shared files and e-mails through laptops.
As a result of the worsening situation surrounding the spread of the coronavirus the Club's Board of Directors has taken the decision to cancel all Club organised events for the foreseeable future. This difficult decision was taken in recognition that the Club has a social responsibility to those who may be affected by the effects of contracting this virus and the desire to minimise the consequences of large scale social interaction. This decision means that the events promoted in this and previous editions of the Gazette will not take and the Board is reviewing the best policy to deal with the issue of refunds for monies already paid by participants who will be notified directly of the situation for the events they have paid for in full or in part. The Board wishes to assure all members that when this situation improves every effort will be made to restore as many events as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding Rosemarie Maslin Chairman
