YORK RSPB LOCAL GROUP UPDATE -

YORK RSPB LOCAL GROUP UPDATE -

Apologies for the long wait for news about RSPB business. We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.
We have recently heard from the RSPB that they advise all local group meetings, trips and other activities should remain cancelled until the 31 December 2020. This is due to the ongoing coronavirus situation and the importance of limiting social mixing to reduce virus transmission and ensure the safety of our members. The aim is for the RSPB to review this decision on Monday 5 October and so at present it is not possible for us to predict when it will be safe to resume some of our activities.
When there is new information we will let you know ASAP by posting here and also by emailing to all LG members who have recorded their consent to receive emails, either for the newsletter and/or just for important information changes only. If you have not "signed up" now is a good time to do so, please send an email to our membership secretary bjcromack[at}btinternet.com
We have decided to publish a printed newsletter this September to inform all members of important updated information regarding our activities in relation to the current Covid-19 situation. In addition, there are other important items regarding the short- and longer-term future of our local group that we wish to inform you of and which need feedback from as many members as possible. The newsletter will be sent out by post to those who normally receive a paper copy or by email to "digital subscribers".
Please share this information with your friends in the group, particularly those who may not visit the website or use email.
Peter Reid for the LG Committee
