The latest news from the Manchester group.

Cancellation of events

In the light of the coronavirus situation, the committee of the Manchester Group of the Victorian Society has cancelled all forthcoming events for April, May and June. This is in line with government advice on reducing social contact and we are also following national guidelines from Chris Costelloe, Director of the Victorian Society. Nationally the Society is cancelling events until the end of May for now, and they are reviewing the situation regularly for events after then.

In the meantime, we will try and ensure we put relevant information on our website and Facebook pages and will be in touch when we next know we can hold an event. We live in strange times for now but, hopefully, it will not be long before we can meet up again and enjoy our mutual interests!
