A number of significant matters were discussed at the (virtual) Committee Meeting held on 18th June.

Most importantly, we concluded that it is not possible to resume Club field or indoor meetings in the foreseeable future.  Further details can be found here.  We are exploring the possibility of ‘virtual’ indoor meetings until it becomes feasible to resume normal  activities.  We will review these arrangements at our next Committee meeting on 23rd July and update Members accordingly.

Members may be aware of disturbance to the reed beds at Wellington Gravel Pits caused by works being carried out there.  We have discussed the issue with the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust who have contacted Tarmac expressing their concern. We have also written to Tarmac and a copy of the letter can be found here.

We considered the HWT Oak Tree Farm Appeal and concluded that it would be better to delay a donation until the end of the financial year, but have sent a letter of intent to donate £5,000 by the end of March 2021.
