In general our members are telling us they feel reassured at the policy of asking all members to show, as they arrive at a meeting, one of two ways of evidence that they have a low risk of carrying Covid – double vaccination proof or a very recent NHS Self-Test.
Membership is on the rise again, the number of groups has now grown to almost 60 and attendance at face-to-face activities is rising each month.
Zoom continues to be used for certain groups, and is proving extremely useful where a group cannot meet face-to-face for a particular reason, but well over 90% of all activities are now back to face-to-face sessions.
To help with the cost of booking external rooms or halls, the Committee has agreed to authorize the payment for these, subject to Treasurer approval, at 100% of the cost until the end of 2022.
We have no fixed venue. Many small groups meet in members’ homes, whilst larger groups meet in various locations. Whatever the venue, we aim for good ventilation.
Groups generally meet on weekday mornings or afternoons. Meetings may be held monthly, two-weekly, or weekly.
