NEW ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING DATE - THURSDAY 22 APRIL 2021 AT 10.30AM
8 February 2021

The AGM was originally due to be held in April 2020 and we have already postponed it twice in the hope that we would be able to get together again in person. Unfortunately that possibility still seems a long way off and we have therefore decided to hold the AGM by Zoom this time. We realise that this is not ideal for all our members, particularly for those with limited or no access to the internet, so to ensure that all members are able to participate in the process we will be making arrangements to allow proxy voting by post as well as online. Further information will be sent out to all members towards the end of February.

I hope you understand our decision but if you have any comments or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Minna Egan
Secretary

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CULTURAL AMBASSADOR?
25 January 2021

We have recently received the following enquiry and thought it might be of interest to members.

I am looking to connect with people within your interest groups to become cultural ambassadors and offer feedback on a piece of theatre I am developing.

The play is a new comedy-drama centering around two strangers brought together by circumstance and a shared crisis of an existential nature, following the death of Stephen Hawking.

I’m looking to recruit cultural ambassadors to watch the play, whether live or recorded, or via live-stream. This will be followed by a short feedback session to help us develop the production and contribute to its successful marketing to like minded individuals and groups.

I would be grateful if you could forward this opportunity, or allow me to distribute it to your members if possible?

Thanks and best,

Steph Hartland

Any members who are interested please reply direct to Steph Hartland (s.b.hartland@outlook.com)

NEW LOCKDOWN
6 January 2021

As you will be aware we are now in another period of lockdown. Sadly no groups can meet face to face, not even the outside activities.
Let’s all hunker down and look forward to the spring. We will be in touch again when restrictions are eased.

Keep Safe
