You will all be aware of the news reports on how the ‘virus’ is being handled across the country and the way that advice given only yesterday has altered significantly in that period not only from the Chief Medical Officer but also the Government.
Therefore for the health and safety of all, I have taken the decision to postpone this event to later in the year when we, as a country, return to some form of normality.
