To all Members
Over the weekend a few members have expressed concern about the continuing state of the country with regards to Coronavirus. I have today been in contact with the committee with regards to this issue and proposed that we suspend the rest of this season.
All these discussions took place before the Prime Minister announced ”everyone in the UK should avoid “non-essential” travel and contact with others to curb coronavirus – as the country’s death toll hit 55.”
As a result of this I must regrettably advise you all that with immediate effect the committee has agreed that the remaining meetings this season, including the AGM, will be suspended.
We will reschedule the AGM for the start of next season and will hopefully be able to carry on as normal by then.
We are in contact with the judge for our Annual Competition and hope to ask her to judge the competition and to offer comments on each entry, the results of this will be announced at our first meeting after the AGM.
During the coming weeks I hope, with the help of the committee, to arrange some on-line activities to allow members to remain in contact until September although we will probably have to rethink the Summer Comp. We will keep posting on our Facebook page and Paul will send out occasional updates by e-mail.
On behalf of the committee may I thank you for your understanding and wish you well over the coming months
2020 Annual Exhibition Competition
Just a reminder that the annual exhibition entry is still open until the 1st April 2020.
Jane Lines has agreed to judge our images so they will be sent to her digitally.
You can enter up to 10 PDI’s, 10 Prints, 3 Triptych PDI’S and 3 Triptych Prints.
All the images will go to the judge, but they will “pdi images” only, we will not be able to show actual prints.
I hope that we find a why to show the prints at some point next season though, I’m sure they will be worth the wait.
Stay safe, stay well, stay indoors.
