With clear guidance on the ongoing Covid 19 situation, sadly we have had to make the decision to postpone all our meetings in both Dumfries and Newton Stewart until further notice, but plan to review the situation regularly.
Clearly with a reasonable proportion of our Buddies and attendees being in the specified ‘at risk’ categories, we must not expose anyone to the possibility of infection, so this for now, is the only sensible option.
Meantime our five telephone helplines will remain operative and you can call any one of these to speak to a Buddy who will talk through your concerns.
We still have your well being at heart, so please call if you need to talk.
The numbers are: 07856 899411.
Roly Proudlock – Chairman
