Some places where smaller groups 20/50 likely to attend cancelling while some places where bigger groups 200/500 likely to attend not cancelling. Depends a lot on the organising group. Stay safe.

Better safe than sorry in view of how fast this thing is growing.

Yeah, a wave of relief washed over me when I read that it was postponed instead of cancelled.

With "social distancing" it would be almost impossible to conduct any sales. So life will go on hold for the next 3/6/9 months?
Keep well all.

I'm doing a favor for my Local club (Downs Bird Breeders Association), even though I am a committee member I'm not attending the meetings to prevent any of the older blokes getting anything just in case
