|CORONAVIRUS – COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
The SRC club room re-opened on 20 July for limited use only. Members have been advised of how to book an attendance at the clubroom. We are sorry that, for the time being, we are unable to welcome guests to visit us.
In these uncertain times we have been looking ahead and considering whether we would be in a position to go ahead with the exhibition next year. Our Chairman, Finance Director and myself have held a number of meetings and eventually finalised an 8 page risk assessment as to what might happen under various scenarios concerning social distancing, probable attendance, increased costs etc. After careful consideration by the company board, and taking into account feedback received from a number of our traders and exhibitors, it was decided that with all the unknowns we could not continue with planning for the exhibition in February 2021 and that we should therefore postpone it. We are sorry to have to take this action as I am sure you would normally be looking forward to coming to help and enjoy the event although we are sure you will understand our position. The exhibition is still some time away but it is at this time of the year when we start to incur expenses many of which are none recoverable such as hotel costs and insurances. So a decision has had to be taken now.
Not all is lost however. We have also confirmed the booking at the venue on February 5th and 6th 2022 and have asked all the exhibitors if they will be able to come then.
The club meets on Tuesday and Friday evenings. You are warmly invited to come along and spend an evening with us to find out for yourself about the club’s activities and layouts. Our modern and roomy clubrooms are just off the A34 on the Stafford side of Stone, very close to where the A51 comes in from Rugeley.
