Bristol Naturalists’ Society and the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Emergency Update: 5th Sept 2020

 

Dear Member,

Following the Government’s relaxation of lockdown, we are now able to offer our members a small taste of normality.

As a consequence, the following will apply:

➤ The Society’s Library will be opening soon.  Booking is essential to preserve social distancing.  Contact the Librarian via jim.bnslibrarian@gmail.com for instructions.

➤ Some field meetings are being offered but on a limited basis to comply with Government guidelines, e.g., only six members can be present; see the Bulletin for details of each meeting.

➤ Improvements to the Society Website are being actively pursued and implemented so, in time, details of field meetings and talks will also be available on the Website.

➤ The venue for our Winter Lecture Programme is not fully open and therefore we are planning to deliver our Talks via a video link in order to keep members safe.  Members must also register their interest for any particular talk that they wish to attend and we will send you the necessary instructions.

If you are not able to attend field meetings, we wish all our members well in the coming months and hope you will be able to enjoy the natural world from wherever you are located despite any restrictions now in place.  Fortunately, geology and nature are always around us and taking an interest in them is both rewarding and therapeutic.

Please abide by all the government advice to stay safe and we look forward to seeing you again as soon as we are able to return to our usual extensive programme of walks and talks.

Lesley Cox (BNS Hon. Sec.)
