A Reminder that this evenings Crosspool Forum Open Meeting in St Columba’s Church, is Cancelled.
As we’re sure you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that it’s now, more than ever, vital to limit social contact and avoid gatherings. For that reason and to help keep everyone safe, the difficult decision was made to cancel this evening’s Open Meeting. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand our reasoning for making this decision.
If restrictions allow, it’s very much hope that the next Open Meeting will go ahead in St Columba’s Church at 7pm, on Thursday 28th January, 2021.
