Newsletter - Sent 28th April 2020

Dear Members

We hope to date that you have all stayed safe and well during the course of the Covid-19 lockdown.

These are very difficult times for all of us in so many ways but particularly frustrating from our hobby’s point of view and even more so given the weather has been so good!

We see that many of you have been putting the time to good use by building new models or tending to those in need of maintenance or repair.

(Please don’t forget to ask any of us for any help or advice you may need. If we can’t help we are sure there will be another member who can!)

We are all obviously desperate to get over to the flying sites and please be assured we will contact you all again as soon as the restrictions are lifted to let you know when our sites are open again.

In the meantime we just wanted to give you a brief update regarding the following:

A message from our Chairman (‘Chairman’s Chatter’)

As you can see Eddie wrote this a while ago but we have decided to send it to you as written.

For obvious reasons some of the items mentioned, such as the new style Newsletter and various club events, have not been actioned but will be as soon as circumstances allow.

The Flying Sites

In case you were wondering we have been making sure both sites have been maintained. The grass has been cut on the flying strips and pits at both sites so the moment we get the green light both sites will be ready for you.

Please be assured this work has been undertaken following the current guidelines regarding social distancing and travel.

We are also just in the process of updating the site webcams and we hope to have these up and running within the next week or so.

Any assistance required

Still on the subject of Covid-19 just in case any members would like help with anything such as shopping or the collection of medical supplies and the like do let us know and we will arrange some assistance for you.

Social Media

We have a number of social media forums running at present, such as Facebook and our Website. We have also just set a club WhatsApp group so if any of you would like to join this please let me know by replying to this email and giving me your mobile number.

We all look forward to our return to the flying sites albeit at present it is hard to predict when that might be.

We will of course keep you informed of any future developments, as we understand them, so we can all get flying again.

In the meantime please all keep safe and well.

HHMFC Committee
