ALL LOCAL GROUP EVENTS CANCELLED

ALL LOCAL GROUP EVENTS CANCELLED

Due to coronavirus and the importance of limiting social mixing to reduce virus transmission, all LG events; indoor meetings, walks, coach trips and peregrine watches have been cancelled for the months of March to August have been cancelled.
It isn't possible to predict when it will be OK to resume normal activities. When there is new information we will let you know. New information will be posted here and also sent out to all LG members who have recorded their consent to receive emails. If you have not "signed up" now is a good time to do so, please send an email to bjcromack@btinternet.com. If you do so you will also receive the Newsletters directly into your inbox without delay (There will be no meeting in April to distribute them!)
Please share this information with your friends in the group, particularly those who may not visit the website or use email.

Cancellation of Local Group Evening Meeting 16th March

Cancellation of Local Group Evening Meeting 16th March

Regretfully, due to concerns and uncertainty about coronavirus 19, the indoor meeting at Clement Hall on Monday has been cancelled. The speaker, on advice from his employer, has withdrawn. The committee considered running a smaller meeting showing an RSPB DVD, however it was decided that the best decision for the safety of LG members and volunteers was to cancel the meeting.
A message is being sent to all members who have "signed up" to receive emails from the LG. Unfortunately, this is far from all members, so it would be helpful if you could share this information with friends who may be intending to attend but may not use email.
There will further cancellations of LG events through the spring and probably summer too. When these are confirmed they will be announced in the Spring Newsletter and on the LG webpage: https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/groups/york/
