We were very sorry to have to cancel the talk on March 13th by Cllr Andrewes of St Ives but rather relieved we made the decision when we did. We also postponed our latest Committee meeting which was due to take place on 13th March (that Friday!). We continue our activities virtually via email. We have of course postponed the Pump House Party from 29th May to a date to be announced. We will be in touch about arrangements for the AGM but there is no regulatory problem with this being delayed.
We are all aware of how difficult things are because of the virus and the closure of so many services. We have collected information from a number of sources and hope it is useful.
