West Cumberland Branch
Dear Branch member,
In light of the current COVID-19 situation and following both Government and HQ REA advice the Committee have made the decision to postpone all branch meetings and events until further notice. As you can appreciate, this decision has not been taken lightly with the understanding that our regular meetings and events provide a vital social outlet for some members.
With the prospect that many members may be forced to either self-isolate for their own or families protection or may contract the virus and end up under medical care, please be assured that the branch is still here to support you.
This support may take many forms including but not restricted to:
- Posting of mail
- Collection of parcels
- Picking up of prescriptions
- Support with essential shopping
- Any general support required including signposting to other associations / Charities for further assistance.
During this period while we are not physically meeting, the use of social media and emails will be key in keeping in touch, so can I ask that you all use our group Facebook page and WhatsApp group. If you don’t have WhatsApp or Facebook please contact one of the committee who will be able to assist you in getting set up. The Secretary has contact details for each member but if your contact numbers or addresses have changed could you please let us know at email@example.com or on one of the contact numbers below.
Sean Balchin – Chairman – 07751521508
TBC – Secretary –
Tom Robinson – Treasurer – 07833672996
Paul Gaitskell – Welfare member – 07967145065
Also please be assured that each of the committee members is empowered to cover the duties of the other committee members if any of us were to fall ill or have to isolate ourselves to ensure continuity and the safekeeping of branch funds.
Finally please remember the association motto of “Service not Self” and continue the excellent ethos we have within the branch of looking after each other.
All the best
