To Members and Friends.
We trust you and your families are all well. Undoubtedly everyone has found 2020 to be a most difficult and peculiar year. We are living in uncertain times and that applies to the future plans of the History Group.
We had hoped to arrange a social event for December of this year but with the lockdown and now the Tier 3 situation this will be impossible.
Normally we hold our AGM in January in the Village Hall. Given the current situation we have decided to postpone this event, probably until March. It is doubtful if face-to-face, indoor meetings will be feasible by then. It may be that an electronic, Zoom type, meeting has to take place.
Would you support and take part in this type of meeting? Please respond by email to Glyn at email@example.com or if you are not on email by ‘phone on 01676 535782.
It has been our normal routine to have an open, speaker meeting at the Village Hall in February Sadly, we have decided that this cannot happen in 2021 and no venue or speaker bookings have been made.
It has been our custom to hold speaker meetings every other month in April, June, August, October and December. We remain hopeful that this may still happen but will have to review the situation nearer the time.
As already advised all membership subscriptions paid in 2020 will be carried forward to 2021 and no additional fees will be payable.
Our contributions to The Bugle have continued and, hopefully, you will have seen the recent articles on the Balsall Common hostelries. We will continue with this activity and would welcome any thoughts you have on topics or research activities for the future.
Seasons Greetings are somewhat inappropriate. We wish you all a Healthy 2021.
From your Trustees.
