Suspension of All Group Activities

All group activities by the Poyntzpass & District Local History Society are suspended for the foreseeable future. There will not be a talk on Thursday 2nd April. It is likely that there will not be any summer trips either. Activities will not be resumed until after the Stormont Executive and the Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland gives clearance for group activities and our Committee is satisfied that holding a meeting or trip will not endanger the health of our members.

The Committee has a draft programme for next year. Therefore activities can be restarted quickly as soon as restrictions are lifted. We will keep you informed.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this time. Please keep yourselves safe until we meet again.
