Covid-19 – Delta Alert Level 2

As we usually do in level 2, we will meet up as usual but with the relevant restrictions in place and no supper.  We will have the QR code for you to use at the door, along with sanitiser.  You will need to wear a mask under Delta Level 2 and we will have the chairs spaced out 2 metres apart.
