BRMRC - suspension of meetings

Your Committee is sure that you are all aware, the country, indeed the world, is in the grips of a particularly nasty pandemic at present - COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

We are concerned that a large proportion of our membership fall within the higher risk categories. Tonight, 16 March, we met to discuss the most appropriate action that we should take considering the risks, government advice and so on.

We have come to the conclusion that is wisest for us to suspend ALL Club meetings with immediate effect. We will, obviously, review the position as things develop but we would expect this suspension to last for at least a month.

This is, however you look at it, a temporary measure. The Club continues and we will update you about this and anything else of interest until we can get back to normal.

In the meantime, we ARE a Club - so, keep modelling. Share with other members what you are doing and the progress you are making on your own projects. We recommend that you join our own Facebook Group if you have not done so already. In that group, and by talking to other Club Members we will continue to be vibrant and supportive of each other in our hobby.

Even if you are not on Facebook, but want to share your achievements let me (webmaster@brmrc.co.uk) know and I will try to ensure they are posted on the Group for you.

For now, happy modelling, we will keep you posted and look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future.

Chris Davis
Webmaster on behalf of the BRMRC Committee
