Dear Members,
The committee met yesterday . Among items for discussion was how best to have 40 members at the next talk. It was decided to have a booking system. Booking will open tomorrow 1 October. Please let me know by email, text or phone if you wish to attend. When the number of positive responses is 40 it will be considered booked out. We are doing it this way so that nobody will arrive at the Iona Centre and not be admitted. No non- members will be admitted and admission fee remains at €3.00

Please wear masks when circulating in the building, when seated they can be removed. Vaccination cert will need to be shown  and we will keep a register of attendance.I hope all these precautions will have you at ease to enjoy the talk.There will be no tea or coffee served after the talk – just this time around.

All going well restrictions will be considerably less at the following meetings.
Don’t forget the A.G.M. starts at 7.30 p.m. sharp.
