March 2020 meeting update – re. Corona virus (Covid-19)

Meetings CANCELLED

The MNFHS meeting; “Victorian Newspapers” on Wed 18th March, is now CANCELLED.

In view of the worsening coronavirus situation (real or imaginary), in consultation with the speaker (who travels from Essex and is also of the “at risk” age) we have reluctantly concluded it will be prudent to cancel Wednesday’s MNFHS meeting.

In light of Government advice we are cancelling all following meetings until further notice (subject to ongoing review of the situation).

Please check our website at www.mnfhs.org for future updates.
