Dear Members

Due to the threat of the Coronavirus and following government advice, the anticipated talk on mining links between Cornwall & Saxony on Wednesday 18 March will be postponed until healthier times.

After consulting Courtenay Smale regarding our visit to view the Caerhays Minerals on Saturday 28th March, it was agreed to postpone this visit also in the interests of health & safety.
Similarly all RGSC activities will be suspended until such time as meetings will be safe for all to attend.
Council members will be in touch via email regarding RGSC business.
