With the government advice of March 16th you will probably not be surprised to learn that the committee and officers of this club have suspended all physical meetings and events for the forseeable future, with immediate effect. However we are aiming to continue to provide an active club presence with a NARC Live! TV stream with guests as well as nets etc which we very much hope you will support and join in.

As of 3rd July it is still illegal to hold mass gatherings and although it might be possible to do some social distancing we do not feel this would make popular or enjoyable club meetings, even if our school venue were permitting guests to use their premises. At this time we hope to arrange something like a 'Radio by the Seaside' social event after the schools go back in September, but we have to wait, watch and see at the moment as we will not take any unnecessary risks.

The Club AGM and awards evening originally scheduled for Wednesday April 1st did not take place, but at the committee meeting on 16th March all club officers and commitee agreed to stay on to run the club for as long as it takes until we can safely reschedule meetings.

As I said previously we will strive to keep the function of the club going with a NARC Live! stream or radio net on Wednesday evenings, plus other onair/online events we will bring to you. After all, communication is at the heart of our hobby, so I feel we should try and put this technology and skill to good use and continue to bring companionship to everyone in our hobby, especially to those who are vulnerable or on their own. And if there is something you feel the club can do to help someone specific, please let one of the committee know and we will do our best.


Please continue to keep an eye on the front page of our website for the latest club news.

Take Care and stay safe.
