COVID-19 Online Meeting Plans


Important information.  Please Read The Entire Post

Hello GBPS Members,

We’re living in uncertain times.  Covid-19 is going to impact our lives for a short while to come.

Following government advice, we’re suspending all face to face meetings until further notice.  We are cancelling the program for meetings at the venue on a rolling month basis so that we can react quickly and regroup as soon as it’s safe to do so.

In the meantime, we will be enjoying Thursday nights with you using the power of the internet.  You will shortly be sent a link to follow which will enable us to meet online and carry on as normal (as much as a virtual meeting can be normal).  So competitions, lectures and tutorials can carry on unaffected.  

The Sad Loss Of John Arnold

It's with great sadness that we must announce the sad loss of John Arnold.

John was also a keen skier in addition to being an active and popular member of the club.  He died enjoying one of his passions and was found dead on a ski slope in Champoluc in Italy.  

John was a popular member of the club and often left our room giggling with his quick and clever wit.  He regularly attended and enjoyed a recent trip to Snowdonia with the club.

John will be missed greatly by the club.

His funeral is at 12:15 on the 9th of March at Sandwell Crematorium followed by a gathering in his honour at the Great Barr Hotel.
