COVID-19 Update

We held a committee meeting on Sunday 23 August and this is to give you an update on how we are planning to cope further during the pandemic.

1) Firstly we decided that it would not be viable to hold any winter programme meetings at the Stables, Chilsworthy for at least the remainder of the year. There are a couple of reasons  for this. The Methodist Church are cautiously thinking about re-opening the church but have not as yet given any thought to re-opening the Stables.We could of course look for another venue but  another reason is that potential speakers so far contacted have not been willing to come out to present. Finally we don't know what the take up is likely to be.

2) We've now completed our summer programme and the bees at Dunsland Apiary have more or less been put to bed for the season.

3) Sadly we have decided that it is not feasible for us to hold a Convention 2021, because of the difficulty of arranging speakers and the uncertainty over whether such events will be allowed under any restrictions still in place in February 2021.

Here's to hoping that COVID-19 will soon be over and we'll all stay safe.
