You will all understand that we are operating in unknown times and we do not underestimate the challenges COVID-19 presents to you all.

This communication aims to cover all aspects of our services:

2020 Activities: We are unsure what the year ahead will look like due to the current restrictions in place for group activities. However as soon as we can we will be inviting you to join us at events you want to do. Therefore can you please fill in our new online survey ASAP here

Thank you for your understanding at this time.

Take care, stay safe.
