Celebrating our Heritage Enhancing our Environment Shaping our Future

CANCELLATION of SOCIETY EVENTS

In accordance with recent Government advice we have decided to cancel all Society events until the end of June when we will review the situation.

Please see the following message from Peter Dunbar, Chair of the Salisbury Civic Society

MESSAGE TO MEMBERS FROM THE CHAIRMAN RE CORONAVIRUS
IT HAS BEEN CLEAR TO ALL THAT RECENT EVENTS HAVE OVERTAKEN ALL OF OUR LIVES AND ACTIVITIES AND WITH GOVERNMENT ADVICE THAT PERSONAL ISOLATION WHEREVER POSSIBLE IS THE RIGHT WAY TO RESPOND TO THE RAPIDLY SPREADING CORONA VIRUS, WE HAVE TO TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION.

THEREFORE, THE SALISBURY CIVIC SOCIETY IS CANCELLING ALL MEETINGS OF COMMITTEES, AND POSTPONING ALL EVENTS, INCLUDING THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, WHICH ARE CURRENTLY PLANNED UP TO THE END OF JUNE. I WILL INVESTIGATE OPTIONS FOR HOLDING THE NEXT EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING VIA AN INTERNET VIDEO CONFERENCING PLATFORM SUCH AS ZOOM, SKYPE, JOIN.me et cetera.

IN THE INTERIM PERIOD I WILL CONSULT WITH THE RESPECTIVE CHAIRS OF GENERAL PURPOSES AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEES TO ASSESS ALL CONSEQUENCES ARISING AND WHETHER A FURTHER EXTENSION OF THIS POLICY IS NECESSARY AS GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES ARE UPDATED. IN THE MEANTIME, COULD THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ORGANISATION OF VARIOUS EVENTS LET THOSE AFFECTED OUTSIDE SCS BE INFORMED.

THE SITUATION IS CHANGING SHAPE DAILY. OUR HEARTS AND THOUGHTS GO OUT TO THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THIS UNPRECEDENTED DISEASE AND WE APPRECIATE THE CONSTANT EFFORTS OF ALL HEALTH CARE WORKERS AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND GOVERNMENT BODIES WORKING ON THE FRONT LINE TO CONTAIN THE VIRUS.

IF ANY MEMBER HAS ANY WELFARE PROBLEMS ARISING FROM THE ISOLATION POLICY PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL ENDEAVOUR TO ASSIST IF POSSIBLE.

LET US HOPE THAT BY FOLLOWING GUIDELINES AND SUPPORTING EACH OTHER, TOGETHER WE CAN MITIGATE THE IMPACT OF CORONA VIRUS EVERYWHERE.
