Message from the Chairman
I hope this sunny and warm weather is allowing you to ‘self isolate’ in an acceptable way. It is not like being at sea but very similar in many ways.
Taking the Governments advice, and in agreement with our Committee, I have cancelled all future monthly meetings and ‘Pint & Pie’ events until further notice. I hope this will only last 3 months and we will then be able to return to normal.
We will continue to plan and prepare for the Green & White Weekend in September but will monitor the situation as we get closer. Final payment for the event was advised by IoW Tours as 10th July 2020, however, this has been moved to 4th August (1 month before) to allow us flexibility in making our decision.
There is no doubt that these are days of uncertainty and I wish you all and your loved ones the very best over the forthcoming months. Please keep in touch, either via email or on the different sites and let me, or your Area Social Secretaries / Reps. know if you have any problems that we can assist with. Our contacts in ‘Fisgardian 51’ are all up to date.
Wishing you all the best,
Important notice - Due to the temporary closure of the Royal Maritime Club, the postal address of the Fisgard Association has changed until further notice. Please click here for more information.
