Annual Reunion & AGM (AR2021)
Our anticipated AR2021that was planned to take place at Chester over the weekend of 17th – 19th September is cancelled. My sincere apologies for this cancellation and any impact it has on your plans to attend.
During the recent Committee meeting that was held on Wednesday 23rd June 2021, via Zoom, a majority voiced their concern for the safety of our members who were eagerly awaiting their booking forms. After carefully considering the rising infection rate of the Covid-19 Delta and Delta Plus variants, particularly in the North West region, coupled with the uncertainty that all social distancing measures will indeed be lifted in July, it was decided to cancel the event. Despite the national “Grab-a-jab” initiative and successful roll out of vaccinations targeting the entire adult population, the Committee remained unconvinced that it would be safe to proceed with AR2021.
Our AGM is going ahead as planned, but limited to a Zoom session. To enable members who wish to attend the AGM the opportunity to do so, details of the date, timings and access details will be sent out in August.
