COVID-19 announcement
Wednesday 18 March 2020

We do not know how the Coronavirus (Covid19) pandemic will develop but in the light of the government’s recommendations we have had to postpone the remaining lectures of the 2019-20 season.

It is our intention to have the postponed lectures in the autumn if the epidemic in the UK has resolved by then. We are investigating the possibility that we could start our season earlier than normal in September. It is also possible that we could have two lectures on the same day in order to fit in the postponed lectures. We will make every effort to deliver all of the postponed lectures. We are working with Churchill College to manage the situation sensibly in order to protect our Members and their students and staff. They have been sympathetic and helpful.

The cancelled SID will be moved to the next season.

It is likely that the Ludlow trip will be cancelled by Heritage. Mary Bligh will email those Members who have signed up as soon as there is news.

The AGM will take place in the autumn. All Members will be given the statutory notice.

We will not be able to produce a programme card until we have a clear idea of the medical situation and have arranged changes with Churchill College and the speakers. Our website will give you up-to-date information and we will contact you by email with any new information http://theartssocietygranta.org.uk/

Contact by email is even more important than ever. If you have changed your email, telephone number or address please email nr10000@cam.ac.uk with the changes. If you have an email that you have not told us now is the time to divulge it. Postage is expensive and time consuming.

May I thank those people who have already changed their standing orders and remind those who have not yet done so that there is some urgency in order to prevent your existing standing order effecting a payment on 31st May. Please remember that there will be at least 14 days delay in executing the change at your bank. Members with internet banking may be able to make changes more rapidly.

Our finances rely on Gift Aided subscriptions. If you do not already have a Gift Aid agreement in force, and are a UK taxpayer, please consider filling in the appropriate form (attached).

Finally, please keep well and look forward to our new, expanded, programme in the autumn.
