Because of the uncertainty of any possible future Covid restrictions, plus the facts that Zoom meetings have proven to be very successful and, as we get older, a larger number of people are more reluctant to want to venture out during evenings, especially when the weather is not very good, the Committee has decided to do an equal number of Chester, Liverpool and Zoom meetings for the 2021/22 indoor meeting season.
If anyone wishes to join a Zoom meeting then they should contact Alan Turton - email Merseyside@rcts.org.uk a week or so before the date of the meeting.
