Programme 21/22

From September 2021 Zoom meetings will be held on the first Thursday in the month (marked with a Z), and Live meetings at the Scarisbrick bowls club in Falkland Road on the third Thursday in the month. The latter may revert to Zoom meeting in the event of adverse changes in the Covid outlook/changes in government policy.

It’s recommended that attendees should consider wearing a face mask at live meetings unless medically exempt, and hand sanitiser will be available when signing in. Subscriptions are restarting this year, so please speak to our Membership secretary Pam, who will take payment and issue your membership card. Payment can either be cash, cheque, or direct bank transfer, and Society bank details will be available.

  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


    1. Hi Jessica.
      Thanks for contacting me. I open the Zoom meeting around 7.15pm with a view to the presentation starting around 7.30 pm. In person meetings also start at 7.30 pm on the 3rd Thursday at the Bowling club. Do you live in or near Southport?
      Regards, Rick
