Update regarding the Welsh Black Cattle Society Annual General Meeting from the Trustees

With the Government advising against mass gatherings and further action relating to social distancing, self-isolation and unnecessary travel, the Society has postponed the 2020 Annual General Meeting until further notice.

Whilst this news is disappointing for everyone, we are sure that you would agree that the health, safety and well-being of our members, staff and the community is of paramount importance.


May Show & Sale

Some members have enquired about the May Show & Sale. We are currently in discussion with Farmers Marts and will take their learned advice on the way forward. We appreciate that cancelling the Sale will be disappointing, however we need to work across the industry to minimise the spread of this pandemic and comply with Government guidance on self-isolation.


Office

Our duty of care to our Staff means that we are fully supporting the Government’s social distancing strategy.

The Office is currently closed, however please continue to use the usual telephone number (01286 672391 - Pat Thompson) and email sarahevelynj@hotmail.com (Evelyn) If you have any queries and we will do our best to respond and keep you posted on further developments.

On a personal note, my message to you all, please keep safe and I pass on my thoughts and best wishes to you all at this very difficult time.

Thank you most sincerely for your understanding and patience and hope that we get back to normal service soon.

Evelyn Jones
Breed Secretary
