Coronavirus update

Hullo folks:

In light of the latest Government advice to avoid social contact, all scheduled CAMRA West London Branch events are cancelled with immediate effect.

This includes this Thursday's social at the Willow Walk, the pub walk on March 31st and all our announced branch meetings and socials in April and May, including the Annual General Meeting, which is postponed to later in the year. When we are able to do so, we will announce new dates for all these events.

To avoid the looming health catastrophe, all citizens are now being urged to change their normal lives drastically and to follow the official advice about the Coronavirus.

We very much hope that they and we will be able to “resume normal service” at the earliest possible opportunity.

Meanwhile, good luck and good health to all reading this. Stay safe.

Les Maggs, Branch Chairman
Paul Charlton, Branch Contact
Stuart Duncan, Branch Social Secretary
