have been closely following Government statements, backed by
the clear advice of the Science and Health professionals which,
until Friday 13th March, suggested that the holding of Group
events was unlikely to put people at significant risk, moreover
that banning them might actually have a detrimental effect on
delaying the spread of infection. This advice has now altered,
leading to our taking the decision that our Vaughan Williams
and Fauré Concert planned for 4th April should be delayed
until later in the year, possibly late Summer, when the prediction
is that the worst of the epidemic will have passed.
It has been a difficult decision to take but at its heart is
the absolute priority to ensure that no member of the Choir,
their families or our audience, is put at any undue risk by continuing
with our current plans for the concert. I have, of course, consulted
with Ian and Tony, all the other Officers of WDCS, as well as
two health professionals from within our own ranks, before coming
to this decision. I know some of you have already expressed your
concerns, which I hope will now be allayed.
