Programme of Events 2020-2021

Covid-19 and its affect on the Society – a message from the Chairman on behalf of the Committee

 

Currently, the massive problems caused by Covid-19 hitting the country continue, as we are all well aware and, like many other organizations similar to ours, the effects have been catastrophic. No light is yet appearing at the end of the tunnel and therefore, with great regret our programme continues to be cancelled.
The Committee, which has met under severe restrictions, continues to monitor the situation and as soon as that light appears, we hope to be back in business. When that happens, possibly, but only possibly, we will aim to restart the life drawing sessions and the one-day workshops, which have had waiting lists due to their popularity. It is hoped to hold the 2021 AGM on May 5. As soon as we are able we will announce plans for next year’s summer exhibition with its widespread appeal in St Albans.
