28th March 2020 at Ravenshead

As you know we were planning to hold our Spring 2020 Day School and annual general meeting at Ravenshead on Saturday 28th March however with the issues surrounding Coronavirus and particularly the risks concerning older attendees we have taken the decision to postpone this meeting with a view to hopefully holding it in October on the same subject of ‘Religious Separatism and Radicalism’. We find ourselves in exceptional circumstances as far as local history meetings are concerned but our first priority is always the well-being and safety of our members and attendees at our events and we have taken this decision with that view at the forefront of our thinking.

We will reschedule the annual general meeting as soon as we can but in the meantime the current trustees (Jennifer Sissons, Judith Mills, David Anderson, James Wright and Chris Weir) will remain in office and be joined by two new co-opted trustees (Sarah Seaton and Bob Massey). It is still my intention to retire as Chairman and trustee at the end of March along with Nick Hayes, Jeremy Lodge and Robert Mee. I remain confident in the ability of the trustees to manage the business of the committee and provide support to individual historians and local history groups as we have in the past.

Please check the website and our FaceBook page for further information particularly for local history society meetings that were advertised in the newsletter but have now been cancelled or postponed.

Thank you for your support.

John Parker – Chairman
