Covid-19 Update for Society Activities

In light of the recent events and the ongoing Government responses to Covid-19, we feel that it was best that we cancel the final two HLHS meetings of the 2019-2020 season; our Annual General Meeting, on 15th April, and our President’s lecture to us, with presentation of Goodliff awards, on 20th May.  We have rearranged our AGM for Wednesday 16th September and this will be conducted through the medium of Zoom . Our Autumn lectures have also been rearranged and they will also be conducted using the medium of Zoom. Details can be found in the Future Events tab at the top of this page or in the diary of events at the right of the page. We will continue to monitor Government advice and will hopefully be able to resume our lecture programme in the Methodist Church in Huntingdon in the New Year 2021. Everyone’s health and wellbeing is of the upmost importance and with the current spread of Covid-19, we feel that supporting the notion of social distancing to slow down the spread of Coronavirus is the most responsible action HLHS can take.

Our Summer excursion programme was sadly cancelled this year but we are planning a suitably socially distanced visit to Leighton Bromswold Church on Thursday 17th September. Places are very limited and restricted to members only; for details see the entry on the right about the visit.

We will of course keep out all members and affiliated societies up to date via email, with additional information for the general public on our website and on social media. In the meantime, we wish you all the best and look forward to welcoming our members again at a safer time.
