Lymington Society members and invited guests
I’m sorry to have to tell you about the postponement of the Society’s AGM, which was to be held on the 24th of March.
We have reached a point in the coronavirus pandemic where it is clear that infection is now going to be prevalent in the community, and is going to be particularly dangerous for older people.
Older people make up a significant number of our membership and whether or not the government prohibit gatherings of this type, which some governments already have, it would be imprudent of the Society to arrange a function where there was a risk that any of our members or guests could become infected.
I am sure that none of you will be surprised that the committee has decided to postpone the meeting until we see how things develop in the future and to reschedule the meeting at an appropriate stage when the country has received the “all clear”.
We will advise you on social events in the light of current circumstances but currently none of the social events can be relied on to go ahead without further confirmation from the Society.
We are really sorry to have to postpone our program but the other parts of the Society’s work of making representation on planning matters and any other issues still continue.
Clive Sutton, Chairman
