On behalf of the Trustees I wish to make the following statement:
I want to assure you, our members, that the Trustees are working very hard in these difficult times for the future of CREW HSG.
Four months into 2020 and we have lost the two most hard-working members we have ever had, in Tony Gregson and now John Tudor. Neither can be replaced, for their total commitment, their knowledge, support and friendship to you our members and our Charity.
We appointed Sophie, only a few weeks ago to be our new secretary, she has taken on the full responsibilities and has been working very hard bringing everything up to date, so we can move forward.
Obviously Covid-19 came like a bolt upon us and stopped everything we do, the exercise classes and all the walking groups, so we had to put in place things we had already been discussing. Sophie and Eve started an online exercise class, which all members can join. The feedback already has been very positive, with some members already asking if this can continue in the future.
We have already started the process of applying for future grants, we have many idea’s in the pipeline with regards to providing exercise classes for the wider community. Sophie and her colleagues will be working together to provide this.
Our dedicated group of walk leaders are on hand, once we are allowed, to continue the walks; I am sure our large band of walkers can’t wait to get back out there, with their many friends – ‘in all weather’s’.
The day will come when we can all meet again and get back to ‘normal’, until then the Trustee’s will make sure that CREW HSG remains strong, forward thinking and at all times keeping you the members informed.
