Although the past few weeks have been quiet for our groups, activities have been taking place in different ways. There has been an increase in groups using Zoom, including the Birdwatchers, Art History and Papercraft, while Local History is making plans to meet remotely in January. The opportunity is there now for our outdoor groups to start up again, albeit with restrictions. The ‘New to Zoom’ and ‘The Coffee Hub’ groups were very well supported, so much so that their December meetings have been extended (see Groups List).
The first Zoom Group Leaders’ Workshop, held via Zoom on 6th November, was attended by 22 Group Leaders and 6 Trustees. Thank you to all those who contributed to a very successful meeting. It was heartening to hear about the different ways groups are dealing with the current situation and helpful to share positive experiences as well as concerns.
2020 has been a challenging year for us all, but hopefully we can look forward to a brighter 2021. I wish all our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
