Message from the President
I hope everyone is coping with the latest restrictions in order to limit the spread of COVID19.  You will notice I’m still President and likely to remain in the position into the foreseeable future until the Trust can hold its AGM. The committee is still functioning, by communication through emails, hence the release of this eNews. This Covid 19 is a very serious pandemic, as we are all finding out.  The less we interact in public the safer we will be. I know it is difficult to change our behaviour, so please be careful.  If you wish to pay your subscription, the Trust would prefer a bank transfer rather than a cheque. Cheques have to be deposited at a Commonwealth Bank, out of our suburb, and it’s just another possible source of infection. Thanks to those who have already paid. Banking details are shown at the end of this eNews.
I have included some new items you may find useful.
