CORONAVIRUS - SUSPENSION OF THE SOCIETY'S
As you may know, the most up to date Government health advice was issued last night which asks us all to avoid non-essential contact with others and stop all unnecessary travel.
In the circumstances, the Management Team has decided to suspend the Society’s meetings with immediate effect until further notice.
We will keep the situation under review, and hope that this situation does not continue for too long a period.
We will keep the painting competition going at the moment, this month will close on 6th April. Keep sending in your images to
Anyone who has booked to come to the Andrew Geeson Workshop on Saturday 21st March, please note that this has been cancelled. Eva will be contacting those who have booked and paid to arrange a refund. We hope to rearrange this workshop later date.
The next scheduled trip is the National Gallery on Sunday 26th April. Sue will be in touch to update members on what is happening with this activity.
Upton House along with all of the National Trust properties will be closing their mansions from Friday 20th March until further notice although the estates will remain open for the moment. As a result I have cancelled our booking for Wednesday 20th May not least because I fall into the category of people told to stay at home for 12 weeks.
The RSC has closed all of their venues until further notice. We ask you to bear with us on this matter as we need to establish the RSC's future intentions. They have asked ticket holders not to contact the box office for the time being as they are experiencing a large volume of calls. We and the RSC will contact you when we know more.
We will review everything on a regular basis and keep you all informed but please also check on the website for our latest update.
