    AGM 2020 - CANCELLED

    Gang, it's Chairman Norm here.

    Been watching developments over the last week regarding everyone's No.1 Virus, and having seen how things are shaping up, and the way people are reacting to it, I've decided, after running it past our esteemed Vice-Chair, that the best course of action is to call off this year's AGM at Stoneleigh (although maybe it's more a course of inaction, since we're not doing something...)

    Reason for this is because, although the Stoneleigh show itself hasn't been cancelled yet, I felt it wasn't right in the current situation to make people feel there was some sort of imperative for them to attend something they might otherwise have given a miss. This isn't to say that we won't still have a stand at the show, if it still goes ahead - the plot's booked and so is the marquee - but it means you can go, or stay away, as it suits you, with no AGM that you might feel you have to show your face at.

    So that means the current committee continue in place for the time being. We'll see how things pan out over the next few months, and if the situation changes favourably, look to hold the AGM later in the year at some location or other. Or it may be that things don't improve over the warmer months, and so we'll end up having to leave it till next year...

    Sorry about this, but I hope you all understand the reasoning behind the cancellation. Also hope I'll nevertheless get to see y'all at some point during the year!

    Cheers!

    Norm

    Good call Norm.

    I'm beginning to think it's only a matter of time before the show is called off. The prospect of spending couple of days indoors being exposed to lots of people worries me. Not so much for myself, more for the impact it may have on my 89 year old Mum and more so for Gerry... He's still planning on being there of course!

    It is disappointing, but well done Norm for making the decision.

    Guy, I am too, sure that it's only a matter of time before the whole things is cancelled in any case.
    It's amazing it's still shown as going ahead?

    Thanks for the support and understanding, guys - looks like we were a day in front here, as the latest on the organisers' FB page is that they're working with the venue to try and reschedule. Not much of a surprise there really
