decision taken at the recent AGM there will be no Branch meetings held
for the foreseeable future. The exception will be the AGM which we will
continue to hold.
This decision has reluctantly been made because reducing membership
numbers over the last five years or more has resulted in seriously
decreasing attendance at meetings not helped by the last two years of
Covid regulations. Added to this we have had almost half the Committee
retire this year, including two officers, with no volunteers to take
over from them.
There is a small caretaker committee remaining and the Branch Secretary
can still be contacted as usual.
The Branch Chairman, remaining and outgoing Committee members would like
to thank all the members who have been so supportive over the years and
the Committee members, past and present, who have worked hard to keep
the Branch going. We hope that sometime in the future there will be
renewed interest and we can start regular meetings again.
