Cancellation of Arts Society Events
I am sure you are aware the Government has announced additional steps to delay the spread of the Covid-19 virus (Coronavirus) and it has become clear that further measures will need to be taken to protect the vulnerable and elderly.
The Tenterden Arts Society has a duty of care for your well-being and safety so regrettably, I must inform you that in line with Government recommendations and with advice from our Headquarters we are suspending all Tenterden Arts Society Events and Lectures for the remainder of this half of our 2020 Programme. This takes us to the end of July after which we will review the situation over the summer break in the light of circumstances at that time.
The April, May, June and July Lectures will be cancelled and we are now in the process of attempting to re-schedule them into our 2021Programme. The visits to Greenwich, Charleston and the Wallace Collection have also been cancelled.
I will, together with the Treasurer review our 2021 membership fee in the light of cancellations this year.
This is a difficult time for everyone, I do hope you and your families will remain clear of this virus. I look forward to more encouraging news when the weather is warmer and we can once again gather together to enjoy our programme for the remainder of the year.
We are in uncharted territory, but we will do our very best to keep you up to date as this situation develops.
With very best wishes
