Message from Chair- Jeff MAPPS

Given the current circumstances we find ourselves in where many public events and large gatherings are being cancelled to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and with consideration for the demographic of our membership who are deemed to be at higher risk, the Gwent Branch AGM scheduled for 24th April 2020 is being postponed until further notice. The audited Branch accounts for last year are included in this newsletter and any queries should be directed to the treasurer, Dave Moses. The treasurer and vice chair positions are due for re-election this year and interested parties should contact the secretary, Sandra Evans. Both positions will be ratified at the rescheduled AGM or the Branch meeting following the AGM in accordance with the regulations. Advice in relation to the Coronavirus is included in the newsletter and further details can be readily obtained on-line if required. As a Branch, we ask that our more able members consider older or more vulnerable members and friends during these uncertain times and provide any assistance they are safely able to give. Jeff Mapps, Chairman
