IMPORTANT CORONA VIRUS UPDATE

Based on Advice from the Government and the Third Age Trust, at the start of the pandemic, all normal Main Meetings and Group Activities were initially cancelled. Main meetings and some group activities were moved to Zoom where possible and appropriate. Plans are now being made to restart physical meetings where this is possible, legal and sensible

Whilst our Meetings and Activities are curtailed we can 'stay in touch' by reading and contributing to a new ad-hoc magazine called “KEEPING IN TOUCH”. Several edition have already been circulated. The magazine is edited by Diana Wilson who is the editor of 'KONTACT 2'. If you would like to submit an Article, Photo or Joke you can make contact with Diana by using the form below. You need to enter your name and email address, click on the Kontact 2 Editor box and enter your message in the box..

Since September 2020 the committee has arranged virtual Main Meetings using Zoom software. These will continue until normal Meetings can be resumed. The committee hopes this will take place in January 2022. The links to access the Zoom main meetings will continue to be emailed out to members close to the meeting dates. Details of the zoom meetings are given in the usual event table on the EVENTS page.

Some groups have recently managed to adapt and restart their normal meetings and activities to cope with the Corona virus
