From the Chairman
Our minor technical issues, and the temporary, plainer newsletter format, continue for this edition. Normal service will be resumed in due course!
As the bursting champagne bubbles tickled our noses welcoming New Year 2020 and we looked forward to a full year’s programme of distinctive Society events who would have thought that, after only two of these events, the roof would come crashing down on our well ordered and tranquil world. A new word ‘Covid-19’ would dominate our conversation and its incursion would become the driving force in totally reorganising our lives – restricting our freedoms and considerably increasing awareness of our vulnerability. However, in spite of the confusing and gloomy prospects, we have adapted well with the sterling efforts of community groups and individual stoicism and, very swiftly it seems, we are at the end of the year with ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. Our increased knowledge of the characteristics and treatment of the Virus together with Vaccine availability in the immediate term, allow considerable cause for optimism. Of course there are huge issues in addressing the national collateral damage but it does seem there is now a distinct possibility of ‘face-to-face’ meetings after Easter.
