CANCELLATION OF WALKS AND SOCIAL PROGRAMMES
This email is to advise you that reluctantly we will have to cancel the remainder of the winter walking programme and will not be issuing a summer programme for the time being. As you know, this is due to the effects of the Coronavirus and the increasingly strict guidelines set out by the Government.
Please also note that this is with effect from today’s date and therefore the Hotpot Supper scheduled for 25th March and the Bowling and Pizza night on 29th April have also been cancelled. Anyone who has paid deposits etc for the Bowling night will be refunded.
It is very doubtful that the UK holiday to Arrochar from 17th to 22nd April will go ahead, but before confirming its cancellation we are awaiting clarification from Travellers of their cancellation policy. They are checking with the hotel if there will be any charges. However, I will update members who have booked for this holiday as soon as we have further details from Travellers. We are hoping that the holiday to Crete on 29th September to 6th October will go ahead, but I will keep everyone informed
This is a very difficult time for all of us especially as we will not be able to meet together for walking or social events for some time. However, I will keep you up to date of any changes or news which may affect us. Don’t forget to check the website.
I hope we can all keep in touch with each other via phone or email etc, but until such time as this dreadful virus is brought under control may I wish you all the very best – look after yourselves and be assured that your Committee look forward to seeing you again when this is all over.
