Important COVID-19 update

To Geelong & Region Branch National Trust members,

The well-being of our region’s members, many of whom are in the high-risk category for Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, is of utmost importance. The government health departments recommend that unnecessary contact be minimised and “social distancing” be practised.

With this advice in mind the committee of the Geelong & Region Branch has decided to cancel planned general monthly meetings until further notice.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and will reschedule planned events for a later and safer time.

Wishing all remain in good health.

Vivienne Lewis

Branch Secretary
