oh no more snow

Once again, we face more snow disruption this weekend, and it is the middle of March! The Committee has been monitoring the weather forecast over the last 48 hours and will continue to do so, attempting to put in contingency plans where possible.

We have prepared communications to ensure that no-one is 'left out in the cold' and my mobile does not go into 'meltdown'... this webpage will be continually updated to keep our members updated.

Messages appear below the image with the 'Latest Update' at the top. If the weather is as predicted, then I anticipate a few amendments to our weekend's activities - please note... no update = carry on as normal.

You can access this webpage from any web-ready device through holcom.be/moresnow

Many thanks Jon Rye (Co-Chairman)
