BCLVGA and COVID-19: Latest news (11 June 2020)

Dear Members,  

It seems that the year 2020 is the golfing year that was never to be, owing to the Covid-19 virus. 

The Committee had a Zoom meeting this week and it was unanimously decided to cancel all events this year following the lead of other societies in Berkshire.  Sadly, although the golf may have been able to be played the social distancing would make the social side impossible, which I know is for many, including myself, just as important as the golf.


The next event will therefore be the AGM in February 2021 with the continuation of the current Committee

for a further year and this year's subscriptions will be carried over, as with the Gittins Trophy entry fees.  

It has been a difficult decision to make but under the circumstances we feel sure it is the right one to keep our members safe.  

I look forward to seeing you all next year and in the meantime keep safe.
