Update on what we are doing

Since we wrote in May about how SSBR’s programme would be affected by the Coronavirus pandemic life has continued in much the same way for many of us.   The easing of lockdown has meant that some travel is allowed, but most people seem to think it is better to stay as near home as possible.

The Committee feels it is unlikely we shall be able to hold any meetings this year, but we are in frequent contact to deal with matters as they arise.

Meanwhile Sue Reed has had to stand down as Membership Secretary.   We thank her for her work since mid 2019, including handling the start-of-year subscription renewals.

For the time being Richard Walsh has kindly agreed to be Acting Membership Secretary and he will be dealing with both new applications for membership and annual renewals.   He looks forward to hearing from new members  –  there is a membership form which can be accessed via the SSBR Membership tab above, and it includes Richard’s address.   Any existing members with queries about their subscriptions can contact Richard.   We apologize to anyone who received a reminder letter when they had already paid.   Unfortunately in the hand over of records and scramble to get out the mailing a few errors occurred.

If you need to contact  Richard about membership, his details are:-  Richard Walsh,  39 Friars Road, Braughing, Hertfordshire, SG11 2NN.   Telephone:  01920 821683.   Email:  Richard@chaffcutter.com
