Advice from ABPS

on Covid - 19 

Given the current situation with COVID-19, the ABPS has given some leadership and guidance, especially given the age profile of many of those involved with our hobby.

The advice is that all Government guidelines should be followed.

It is clearly a changing situation so individual societies or members might well feel that it is advisable to have alternative arrangements in the event of another surge, variant or lockdown.

We really want to make sure that all societies promote themselves on the Internet. We feel that it is an essential way to reach new members, particularly those wishing to find a new hobby or reignite a hobby of their youth. They are more likely to be internet-wise. It is also useful for keeping in touch with existing and older members, who are less able to make it to meetings.

Free of charge Website design and initial training (there are conditions and you may wish to add things which will attract fees)
