Message No 5 from our Chairman - 25 September 2020


Dear Members

I am sorry to inform you that Committee have decided to cancel the Temporary Campsite planned to take place at Sperrin College from 2nd until 4th October.

There are good reasons for reaching this decision:

  • The increased rate of Covid-19 infection presents a significant risk to our members, Sperrin College, and the wider Magherafelt community.
  • The new Regulations announced by the Northern Ireland Executive on Tuesday 22nd September, coupled with the colder weather, make any form of social meeting with friends impossible.

I apologise for the disappointment caused and the short notice, but we have been holding off until the last possible moment in the hope that the event would be able to go ahead.

There was a lot of thought and preparation invested in this event and I hope that our members will understand that the decision to cancel was not taken lightly.

Stay alert, Stay Safe and keep an eye on our Website for future updates.

Joe Little

Group Chairman                                                                                25 September 2020
