Important notice to all HWC members.
Precautions against Coronavirus.
In light of the Scottish Parliament taking the decision to close all outside gathering of more than 500 people and all inside gatherings of more than 100 people we the committee for HWC have taken the decision to suspend all our meetings in the foreseeable future.
The reasoning for this is that our building does not allow for reasonable separation of the individual, the ventilation is poor and our members are mostly of a certain age. Although our numbers are less than 100 we are in a confined space with everyone breathing the same air.
The length of time the closure will apply will be open ended, but I would anticipate there being no meetings before the end of April and could be longer, a review of the situation will take place mid to late April.
Any new information will be posted on our web site and Facebook page.
Anyone with any questions or concerns can contact me or Geoff through the web site email contact.
Regards to everyone,
Alec Mutch, Chairman, this notice issued on behalf of the committee for HWC.
Updated 14th March 2020.
If you have made an item for the competition that was due to happen on Thursday 19th March, hold onto it, we will be holding that competition as our first meeting after the crisis has passed.
In the meantime our meetings have been suspended and the clubhouse is closed.
This applies to all meetings, committee meetings and training meetings.
