Talk for March Cancelled


In response to the Covid 19 crisis. The April lecture has been cancelled. The first of the summer visits - to the Merchant's House, Marlborough - has been rescheduled provisionally for May next year, and we expect to organise a similar postponement, to June 2021, for our visit to Old Bowlish House, Shepton Mallet. The Lansdown battlefield walk, scheduled for July, will also now take place only when it has become safe to make plans. The 2019/20 AGM will now be postponed until the first lecture that takes place next season. At the AGM we present the branch report and accounts these will now be circulated by mail and email together with details of the next season's lecture programme which will also be available on this site. We have been having such a successful season so far as we have settled into our new home at BRLSI with good speakers, well-attended lectures and a very special evening at the Roman Baths and Pump Room that it is particularly sad that the branch now has to go into a state of suspension. What is most important is that we all stay well and cope with the unprecedented disruption caused by the coming of Covid-19. The members of the branch committee wish all members good health and peace of mind throughout the months ahead. We hope to see you when the 2020-21 season begins at BRLSI on Thursday 24 September.
