As you are undoubtedly aware the current Coronavirus outbreak is having an unprecedented impact on the country.
The committee has spent the last two days discussing the implications for the club and specifically for Godre Pentre.
We had been hoping that whilst formal gatherings would need to be cancelled we might be able to preserve some limited access to the cottage.
Unfortunately tonight's announcement by the Prime Minister means that this will not be possible.
As a result, all official club weekends are cancelled until further notice.
In addition we have have reluctantly concluded that we have no choice but to close Godre Pentre entirely except for any necessary maintenance visits.
We will shortly be changing the code to the key safe to prevent access. If you are lucky enough to have your own key I would ask to to respect the decision of the committee in this matter. It has been the subject of much discussion and I make this announcement with a heavy heart.
I will keep you informed of any changes to club policy and look forward to seeing everyone again in a few months.
In the meantime you might perhaps consider spending some of your new found spare time writing an article or two for Pelobates!
Best wishes and god bless,
