Changes to the original programme

For a number of reasons we have had to make numerous changes to the events at our Thursday coffee mornings. The programme for the rest of the season is on the Events page , here. Robin sent the revised programme to members and others known to the Society by email on Saturday, 3rd February. If you need it in paper format, then please contact the Secretary with your name and address and she will send it to you by post. Morag’s mobile number is on this season’s printed programme.

Thursday, 2nd November

The Coffee Morning tomorrow has been cancelled due to the weather warnings of strong winds and heavy rain forecast for that morning. Maisie emailed members, and others that we know, early this morning with the thought that it would be wiser not to meet tomorrow morning because of the possible impact that the weather may have on our journeys to and from the meeting. Council members then made the decision to cancel it and several members sent emails supporting that decision.
If by any chance you did not receive an email from Maisie, then please do let her know so that we can make sure you receive any future emails giving information about our meetings. Stay safe!
