Dear fellow CBC member — it is with huge regret that we must cancel our previously advertised events this month as a result of the government’s latest rule change, reducing the size of public assemblies (inside or out) from 30 to 6. This effectively means we can stage no indoor meetings at the Carsington Visitor Centre or club trips until further notice. This is a great shame as we had negotiated to hold indoor meetings in the New Leaf restaurant, a huge space compared to the Henmore Room that would have given us ample scope for social distancing. As well as Ian Newton’s originally-scheduled talk on the 15th, we will also have to cancel (or hopefully postpone) our trip to Old Moor on the 20th.
We will update you on any changes in this status (an occasional check on the website is advisable) – either to confirm further cancellations in the coming months or, more hopefully, to inform of any resumption in events as and when things change for the better.
All the best … and keep on birding.
