In view of the very latest Government restrictions, group meetings in a social capacity will be limited to six people indoors or outdoors from Monday 14 September.

This of course will include meetings in parks, venues that have been accepting up to 30 people and effectively stops all WI meetings for the foreseeable future.This is really disappointing for those WIs just beginning to meet but this time this is not a guideline it is a legal obligation and subject to fines. If it is at all possible to run anything at Cresswell House for just 5 people plus tutor we will of course do our very best and make it viable.

I am sorry to have to deliver this message and will keep you informed of anything further which is received from National during the next few days.
