Membership update

Due to the Guild events this year being decimated by the Covid 19 pandemic the committee have taken the decision to extend memberships as follows:

  • If you have already paid for your 2020-21 membership, this will be automatically extended to March 2022
  • If you have not already paid for your 2020-21 membership, but do so before the next renewal, this will be automatically extended to March 2022

The close working nature of what we do does make it difficult to hold events. We are constantly monitoring the situation so please keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for updates or you can always contact us

Please keep safe and well and we hope to meet up soon

Guild Secretary
