Unfortunately the physical AGM, previously deferred to October 3rd in Winchester, has been cancelled. The venue has confirmed that it could not accommodate the expected numbers while adhering to government guidance on ‘social distancing’. As a result, the club will now provide an ‘electronic AGM’ which will deal with the main business of the meeting. This will be accomplished as follows:
• For members with Internet access: the report will be published on the Member’s Area of the club’s website, and a link will be provided to a corresponding online voting survey.
• For members without Internet access: a printed copy of the report (together with a voting slip and prepaid envelope) will be sent to their home address.
The relevant website addresses will be announced in the club’s autumn magazine, ‘Railway Ramblings’ No. 167, which will be published in early September.
Further details are contained in the Member’s Area of the website.
The Club is aware that some areas are considering a tentative resumption of activities. Any such events will be listed in the next issue of the magazine. Should there be no events listed in your area, please do not chase up your area organiser as publicity will be issued where events have been arranged and it is possible that not all areas are in a position to resume imminently.
All events are subject to change depending on how the Covid situation develops and the government’s recommended measures and responses. Should you wish to attend an event, you MUST book your place as soon as possible as numbers will be limited and also contact the walk leader or area organiser to confirm details a week or so before the date.
Although, as always, support for RR events is welcomed, the club is aware that many members will not feel ready to head out for events, and that any events listed are not ‘one-off’ opportunities to view or explore normally private land. Such events will not take place in current circumstances.
Take care and stay safe, everyone.
