Dear All
Hope you are keeping well, enjoying a little more freedom and making the most of the beautiful sunshine we are getting now.  I cannot believe that the year is almost halfway through and in more normal times Wensleydale Arts Society would be thinking about the summer break.  
The good news is that this morning I went to Tennants to talk to Paul about September and, all things being equal, we are good to go with our first meeting of the new season on Tuesday 28th September.  Gillian Hovell will be talking to us about Christmas the Roman Way.  You will notice that we are now meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month.  We listened carefully to your comments about the sound problems we were experiencing, and if you remember, we decided to change the week so that we can use the larger and more convenient Garden Room.  It has the stage, an excellent hearing loop and more space to accommodate us all.
We will have more details for you after June 21st when we know exactly what the government guidelines will be, but there will be plenty of room for social distancing and for always ensuring your safety and wellbeing.  The other piece of good news is that, for those of you who like to have your lunch at Tennants prior to the meeting, you will now be able to reserve a table in the Café as well as the Bistro.  You will still be entitled to 10% discount on your food and drink on meeting days, subject of course to any other offers Tennants are running.  For example, if they are doing their 2 meals for 2 people for £21 you would not be entitled to your discount on top of that.
We are planning a small social gathering for members prior to the start of the season so that we can all reconnect and catch up ready for the new season, but more about that nearer the time.  There will possibly be some changes to the way you register at the start of the meeting, but again, more about that when we know exactly what the rules are.
All that remains is for me to wish you an enjoyable summer whatever your plans are, and to hope the weather is set fair for a while yet.
Best wishes
