At present, despite the outbreaks of Corvid19, we are still anticipating that the netball trip to Disneyland Paris will go ahead as planned although we are keeping a daily watch on Public Health England and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s daily briefings.
I am therefore writing to inform you that I shall be holding an information meeting on Wednesday 18th March at 6.30pm in the Hall.
The tour company are releasing our itinerary and travel details three weeks before our departure and therefore by the meeting I should have all the up to date timings for the trip.
Please can you complete the form opposite to confirm your attendance? In addition please read the following information and action on it if required.
