Changes due to Coronavirus

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


Update – April 2021
In line with Government advice, LOMCA suspended its activities which involve group meetings for the start 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.

We are currently unable to run our formal programme due to COVID-19, but are in touch via email, post and Zoom meetings. New ladies are welcome to join in without commitment.
See WI blog for on-line activity. 


Memorial Hall
At the time of writing we are hoping that the Covid key dates will not be extended and we will be able to open the Hall from 17th May which is the earliest possible at the moment but we will keep our hirers informed.  Click here to see the pre-COVID activities which will hopefully be returning in the next few months.

The Hall's 100 club has normally run from March until December each year. This year we have decided to suspend the club due to the complications of contacting members under the Covid restrictions. We will review the situation from time to time and let people know when we decide to re start. In normal times the club is a significant help towards your Hall's running costs as well as providing a little boost for the winners so we hope when the time comes as many of you as possible will support us.
