CRS News and website updates

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus crisis, we are postponing all forthcoming events.

We encourage all members to follow
Government advice and NHS advice. Please stay safe!

Several local community groups are being set up to help the elderly and vulnerable with their basic needs if they have to isolate for long periods. We trust that those that are fit and able will contribute to these initiatives.
