A Message From Our Chairman
Hi SSBS members,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time. I said that I would keep you updated with any plans for this year, so I have called a committee meeting for the first Saturday in July, hopefully we can make some plans for this year. I will keep you informed of our decisions.
I know this is a big ask in these difficult times, but we still need to raise funds for insurance and other essential bills whatever happens this year. Therefore I appeal to you all to still pay your membership fees and maybe donate money you would normally spend at the coffee mornings. Times are hard for a lot of us at the moment but we do need to keep funds coming in.
Please don't forget that you can speak to me or any committee member about anything, or even just for a chat.
Take care and stay safe.
Steve Newman, Chairman
Unfortunately our coffee mornings are on hold for the moment, but these will recommence when it is safe to do so.
These are the best way to meet other members, catch up on news, buy lovely home made cakes and jams and SSBS merchandise.
A reminder that the deadline for new applications to join SSBS must be submitted to the Membership Secretary by 15th October.
