Covid-19 — Coronavirus

Dear Branch Members,

Circumstances have altered with regard to our response to the Coronavirus outbreak.    

  The Branch has received updated information from the National Waterfront Museum. Under the present circumstances the Museum will now be closed until the end of August. Consequently, as well as there being no public talks in April or May, the talks in June, July and August have also been cancelled.

   We have decided that the History and Heritage Fair that we had planned for May will not take place this year. We apologise to those organisations that were to attend.  We look forward to doing it next year.

   Hopefully, we’ll begin the return to normality with our September talk, details of which are yet to be confirmed.

  We thank you for your patience in this trying time and look forward to seeing you all again when we have weathered the storm.

   Please check the branch website (http://www.haswansea.org.uk) as well as Facebook and Twitter on a regular basis for any updates.

Owing to the effects and constraints of the Coronavirus pandemic, our public lectures at the National Waterfront Museum will not take place in the months of April, May, June, July and August.

We apologise for this inconvenience, but the health and wellbeing of our members and supporters must be uppermost in our minds.

We look forward to seeing you again when it has all settled down.
