FORUM 2020/2021 SEASON CURTAILED.

The Forum has cancelled the rest of the 2020/2021 season which was due to run until the end of April next year. This is due to the continuing difficulties and uncertainty created by the COVID situation. Members have been advised separately and booked Speakers similarly advised.

It is hoped the Forum can recommence with the 2021/2022 programme beginning on Tuesday October 5th 2021.

MORE SAD NEWS.

I am sorry to have to advise you of the death of Peter Staples on October 27th. He had been in Harrogate Hospital for a small operation but developed pneumonia and passed away.

Peter was another member from our 2008 intake and had been our Chairman for the 2016/2017 season. and in 2011, assisted by his wife Margaret, gave an illustrated talk to the Forum about their trip from Rio to Lima via Macchu Picchu which was well received.

Peter was another Forum stalwart, always cheery and friendly and will be much missed by his friends and members.

Condolences have been offered to Margaret and family on behalf of the Forum .
