ALLHALLOWS DAY MEMORIAL SERVICE AND AGM 31ST OCTOBER 2020
It is with a great deal of regret that the Club's Committee has come to the decision that as a result of the continuing COVID 19 pandemic and the current restrictions and guidelines on social distancing, it will no longer be possible to hold the Club's AGM at the Hare and Hounds, Sidbury on Saturday, 31st October nor hold this year's Memorial Service at St. Paul, Honiton in the afternoon, as had been previously planned.
The decision to cancel both of these important events has not been taken without a great deal of thought but in light of the current situation and after consultation with both the proprietors of the Hare and Hounds and the church office of St. Paul, the Club Committee are of the view that in the interests of everyone's safety and well being, cancellation was the only option.
Having come to this decision the Club Committee are nevertheless of the view that the sacrifice of those OHs who gave their lives in the service of their country should not go unacknowledged and there will therefore be a special page produced on this web site in October in their memory and also in recognition of those OHs who have died during the course of this year.
As for the AGM, both the President and Secretary will produce their own reports on the activities and events of the past 12 months and the Treasurer will produce the Club Accounts for 2019/20. These reports will be put on the web site in October and OHs will be given the opportunity to email in any questions. Both questions and the replies will be be uploaded for all OHs to review.
Neither solution of course satisfactorily replaces the actual holding of either event, but the Committee hope that in the current circumstances the membership will accept these as a suitable alternative.
