The CWO (Conservative Women’s Association) is beginning to plan the Association Annual Dinner, which we hope will be able to go ahead this year. It will be in October and probably at the Grosvenor Hotel in Stockbridge. We hope that a change from the former venue in Romsey might prove attractive to the more northerly members. As soon as a date and a speaker are confirmed it will be advertised here.
We hope that the Association branches – Test Valley Central, Romsey Rural, Romsey Town, Bassett and Swaythling and North Baddesley/Valley Park will be organising events locally too.
IMPORTANT COVID MESSAGE
Assistant Chief Constable Maggie Blyth, said: “Today (April 12) marks the start of some easing of restrictions and while the move towards ‘normal’ life is welcome, there are rules still in place and that’s important to remember when planning activities with family and friends. We can’t become complacent and risk undermining what we’ve achieved so far.
“We are still in the midst of a pandemic and everyone’s priority needs to be the safety of themselves and others.
“It’s important to remember that you can only meet friends and family outdoors, and that the rule of six or two households remains in place.
“We will continue to use the tried and tested approach of engaging, explaining, and encouraging with those that we come into contact with in our communities. We will use enforcement as a last resort, but those involved in blatant breaches of the Health Protection Regulations, such as at indoor parties, can still expect to receive a fine.
“Our local Neighbourhood Policing Teams have identified local areas that may see increased numbers of people outdoors and alongside our partners we have put in place regular patrols and will provide support to businesses and individuals as needed, to ensure that everyone stays safe."
