  1. As the Covid regulations are relaxed next week are there any plans for the resumption of routine face to face meetings?


    1. Hi David, Thanks for contacting me, can you confirm your correct email address since the one I have is always rejected, and I don’t have a phone number to contact you. We do intend to restart live meetings, hopefully back at the Scarisbrick Bowling club in Falkland Road, from September onwards. Our current zoom contract runs until the end of January 2022, and I’ve been hosting two Zoom meetings/month but this has dropped to 1/month for July and August. Hopefully, provided circumstances permit, we will likely hold one Zoom and one live meeting/month, at least until the end of January next year. Rick
