The HTFS committee is continuing to monitor the CVID-19 situation and announcements of the Government and Health authorities.  As a result it is not expected that members' meetings will not restart before August 2020.  The committee will further review this situation in July and decide then should the restart of members' meeting be further deferred.  We are not planning to be pace setters once restrictions are lifted but to continue with a conservative approach.

Meetings deferred now to at least August 2020.  Please refer to later post.

Meetings Cancelled

It is an unfortunate fact that so many events have already or are being cancelled due to the Coronavirus.  The HTFS Executive at a meeting today has decided in the interest of all members who attend monthly meetings and lectures that these are to be suspended, certainly for April through to June when the situation will again be reviewed.

We will update this post as and when necessary and to let you know when monthly meetings will resume.
