Coronavirus – Meetings

Stevenage Locomotive Society statement ~ Suspension of future meetings.
March, April & May (including AGM) meetings are now Postponed.     June onwards – meetings under review.
Following discussions with all relevant parties over the weekend, the Stevenage Locomotive Society committee has unanimously agreed to suspend all future meetings until the current Coved 19 crisis subsides and it is safe for all concerned to resume. The Corona virus (COVED 19) situation is changing and escalating dramatically by the hour, culminating in the possibility of government restriction on public meetings and social interaction for the over 70’s.  Clearly this will have an effect on many of our members lives and as well as our speakers and committee members, many whose profiles fall in the ‘at risk’ category. It would clearly be unwise to put them, our valued members and visitors (plus families) at risk. A letter is being issued to all our members with their March copy of Aurora this week.
Therefore after considering all the information available, the committee with regret have reluctantly agreed to postpone all meetings until it is safe to resume. As such our meetings due on March 26th, April 30th & May 28th (including our AGM) have been POSTPONED. We hope to reschedule all meetings over the next 18 months where possible.  The June 25th meeting is also likely to be affected. This meeting will be reviewed in late May in liaison with our speaker, along with all our other summer meetings.
AURORA :-  Following consultation with our editor we fully intend to produce a monthly Aurora Magazine for our membership to enjoy throughout the crisis and we are keen for you to send him items to be considered for inclusion. Now is a good time for all of us to revisit our archives and unearth a few gems and memories. We awaiting your input.
Please watch all our platforms for further developments. We wish all our members and visitors all the best over the next weeks and months until we resume meetings and thank you for your understanding at this troubled time. We look forward to meeting up with you all when it is advisable to do so.  Keep smiling and stay safe everyone.

The committee of the Stevenage Locomotive Society.    Monday 16th March 2020 12.00.
