The Society, with the Support of the Town Council and the Chamber of Commerce, has relaunched its “Shop Local – Save Shops” campaign with the slogan – “Support Lymington This Christmas”
Commitee Member Pam Morrissey, who came up with the idea of the Society launching a “Shop Local” initiative in the town, together with Town Mayor Anne Corbridge and Society Deputy Chair Don Mackenzie, were on hand in the High Street at the start of the campaign to unveil the first of four banners placed around the town.
We also had the support of the Lymington Times who kindly reported our campaign and in fact invited the Society to write the editorial for their Lymington Christmas Shopping supplement
In addition, over 100 posters were distributed in local shops to help emphasise the “Think Before You Click” – “Support Lymington This Christmas” message.
The Society really hopes that as many residents as possible will take this the chance to “Shop Local” and support our retailers this Christmas.
The Executive Commitee of the Lymington Society has decided in view of the ongoing coronavirus situation and the further lockdown, that now is the time to move to using Email Updates as the main way of communicating with members. This will enable us to communicate more often with members, and will save considerable costs having to be paid out of member’s subscriptions.
We would be grateful if any members who have not sent us their email address, now do so, in order that we can send them this, and future updates
We have just completed our first edition of this Email Update and it will be winging its way to all LymSoc members soon.
After much delay, when the Executive Commitee hoped a socially distanced AGM might be possible, the latest lockdown and the likelihood of continuing restrictions, make this impossible. The Society has therefore announced that the delayed AGM will be held on Microsoft Teams on Monday the 30th of November at 6.00 pm
We are using Microsoft Teams instead of Zoom as it allows for a longer meeting than the standard 40 minutes of Zoom. Revised documents for this delayed AGM can be accessed here: Click Here for AGM Documents
