  • Given the increase in the number of Covid infections, specifically in Waterford, the officers and committee decided to pause the phased reopening of activities.
  • The events that restarted in October still stand because in the main they are outdoors and the PH precautions are easily managed.

Message to Dublin Branch members from Deirdre Chadwick Hon.Sec. Dublin Branch RSTA:

We had hoped to be able to resume activities in November with our AGM but unfortunately, due to increased numbers of Covid cases both in the community and in hospitals, we have decided to postpone our proposed AGM.

We hope that we will be able to resume meetings and activities in the not too distant future and look forward to welcoming new members as well as welcoming back all our other members.  In the meantime, we send our best wishes to our members and hope that they and their families are keeping well.
