(LOMCA, including the Active Living Centre, ALC)

For information please ring Graham 01761 232753 or e-mail: graham@grahamcroft.plus.com

LOMCA, in line with Government advice, has suspended all of its activities until at least May 2021. 

Update – May 2021

Plans continue for what we hope will be our first Active Living Centre meeting this year on 24 May 2021, to be held outside on the Recreation Field from 10.30am, weather and coronavirus conditions permitting.  Regular ALC members only, as numbers are likely to be restricted, with booking required by 10 May at the latest.  We hope that we will be able to meet inside in the Memorial Hall in June for both the ALC meeting and Kurling & Cake meeting.  

LOMCA Plant Sale.  We are holding another sale of bedding and vegetable plants this year – good selection of bedding plants including petunias, begonias, dwarf dahlias, cosmos, geraniums, sunflowers and sweet peas.  Vegetable plants – runner beans, tomatoes (mostly pot type), courgettes and indoor cucumbers.  All profits go to support the Leigh on Mendip Community Activity group (LOMCA).  Plants must be ordered by 8 May and collected from Holcombe between 15 and 22 May – only by arrangement. Contact Graham as above for details.  

Update – April 2021

 In line with Government advice, LOMCA suspended its activities which involve group meetings for thestart of 2021 - this applies to our Active Living Centre (ALC) meetings and Kurling & Cake sessions.  However, we are in the process of putting in place the plan for our first meeting on 24 May 2021 which, subject to weather and coronavirus restrictions, will be held outside on the Recreation Field. This meeting, because of restrictions on numbers, will be open only to regular ALC members. 

We regret that the proposed limit of a maximum of six people indoors, from 17 May at the earliest, until 21 June, meant that we could not hold the Kurling and Cake meeting as planned on 25 May.  We have as a result cancelled this meeting and plan to start in June, when hopefully everything will be more manageable.  Advance booking will be essential at all meetings for the foreseeable future with bookings for the May Active Living Centre meeting required by 10 May.


Update 16 March 2021  

We have continued to maintain links with most of our ‘older’ members throughout the period of lockdown.  However, because our core support is to the ‘older person’, and with coronavirus continuing, we have been unable to run the highly popular Active Living Centre meetings and our Kurling and cake meetings. We hope to be able to restart meetings later in the spring.
We are holding our AGM this year remotely but cannot use Zoom, or similar means, as many of our members do not have access to the internet.  We are therefore sending out the AGM paperwork to our members by e-mail or post on 22 March with comments required by 8 April.  We are also making a few changes to our Constitution to provide more flexibility on how we operate.  Election of Trustees will close on 8 April so if anyone would like to become a LOMCA Trustee or ‘take part in’ the AGM please contact Graham Harris on 01761 232753 or by e-mail: graham@grahamcroft.plus.com
