Membership & Groups Activities – Membership has been extended at no cost to April 2021 and to date only two members have said they will not be renewing. Nineteen of our groups have found ways of meeting; whether in small socially distanced groups; by Zoom or WhatsApp.
10 Year Celebrations – Although our planned 10th Anniversary Celebrations have been rescheduled to 2021, we were able to go ahead with a celebratory tree planting at the Glenfield Millennium Green.
Christmas Festivities – We have distributed an 8-page special Christmas Newsletter to members and will be holding a light hearted and festive Zoom meeting to get us in the Christmas spirit on the 17th December.
Website COVID Page - we have added a COVID page to our website, for news and as a place for members to share their ideas and information.
