Lockdown easing

As the country cautiously moves forward and pandemic restrictions are eased, many of our groups will turn their attention to how and when our members can safely resume face-to-face meetings.

The following must be borne in mind:

Any dates for face-to-face meetings, events and trips are provisional and based on our understanding of the UK Government’s plan to gradually ease pandemic restrictions. As such they are subject to change. Please ensure you have the latest information from your convenor or organiser.

Any member who is feeling ill, displaying COVID-19 symptoms or has received a positive test result in the past 10 days must NOT participate.
