Coronavirus – Message from the Chair

Dear Member,
I am writing to you to inform you that, due to rapidly escalating health concerns relating to
the spread of Coronavirus , the committee has decided to cancel all further meetings of the
2019/2020 session. We are sorry to have to make this decision but believe it to be in the
best interests of our members and the guest speakers. Our June trip to Thirlestane Castle
will be rescheduled for Spring 2021.
It is intended that the new 2020/2021 season will start, as normal, in September and our
50 th Anniversary dinner will go ahead on Thursday 15th October.
We will send out a letter about the new season, and information about tickets for the
dinner, a little earlier than usual, probably in July. Hopefully, by then, things should have
resolved and we will all be able to look forward to the autumn.
In the meantime, please stay well and we’ll see you all in September.
Best wishes,
Carolyn Thompson (Chair)
