Cup of tea

WELCOME BACK

Our Committee is currently considering the best way to re-open Group activities such as indoor meetings, walks, day trips and group holidays, now that restrictions due to the pandemic have been lifted. A start has been made on the walks front and details of three scheduled walks can be found on the Events page. Members' views are being canvassed about whether they would be happy to attend Indoor Meetings at Powick or would prefer to continue with Zoom meetings. Obviously, we need a big enough attendance at Powick to make the cost of hiring the hall viable, so it is important that people respond.

Expressions of interest have also been invited from members in regard to proposed trips away later in the year and early 2022. These will only go ahead if there is sufficient interest so if you want to go on any of the trips then you need to make your views known asap so that arrangements can be made.

I have missed our meetings - Zoom doesn't really cut it for me, so I am looking forward to seeing all our friends again, hopefully next month.
