With the imminent trial re-opening of the WSGC (see below for details) it is probably a good time to check we have your current email address. If you have changed your email address over the last couple of years , or you think you may not be getting emails from us , please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear WSGC Member.
As you might imagine, we have been continually assessing the relative safe reopening of the club throughout the Pandemic and have, on several occasions, had to abandon plans due to changing circumstances.
This email is to advise you that we now have a plan to have a trial meeting, and also to try to gauge the likely response we will have to the following changes to our previous format, that we have made in an effort to best adapt to the current challenges
First we have a new venue, which will offer a better space, good parking , ease of access, and most importantly, our own entrance and exit (I.e. The meeting will for the most part be self-contained) , please take a look at their website in this link https://www.ettingtoncommunitycentre.co.uk/ and scroll down to take a virtual tour . We will be using the Main Hall.
This initial meeting will be free to members, however there will be no buffet or refreshments provided, so it will be a case of bringing your own refreshments.
The Meeting will take place on
Sunday 15thMay 2022
Finally may I ask to reply by return as to whether you are able to attend or not, either way, as it will be very helpful for the committee to further refine plans with the hall’s booking secretary?
We hope to see as many of you as possible and get back to the sound of music and banter that makes our club so special
Best wishes from the Committee.

Just a quick note to keep you abreast of the situation regarding WSGC in relation to
the Covid-19 pandemic.
Earlier today The Committee had a Zoom meeting with a view to considering the arrangements going forward. Two things were decided.
1. The membership fees already paid for 2020 will be transferred to 2021.( i.e. 2020 will be written off)
2. Due to the frequent changes in the regulations surrounding the virus, the possibility of an upturn in cases as we approach winter, and the particular issues of running the club safely, it has been decided that there will be no more scheduled meetings this year. It is the committee’s intention that the club will recommence in the early part of 2021, at a date to be advised subject to the prevailing government guide lines at the time
We hope you will understand the reasons for these decisions, equally we understand that some members are very keen to get back to normal, but please be assured that we will return to Whitnash, to “ keep the sound alive “ just as soon as it safe and practical to do so.
The WSGC Committee.
There's a new page , for videos by club members that might like to while away a few hours by creating home grown videos , thereby keeping the creative juices flowing . For more information contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m sure you won’t be entirely surprised that, due to the unfolding coronavirus epidemic, the committee has decided that all meetings will be cancelled until further notice
We are sorry if this is a disappointment to you , but are sure that due to the unprecedented circumstances you will understand the reasons for the decision.
We can assure that as soon as the emergency is over we will resume the meetings as soon as possible , and will advise you by email and the website.
In the meantime take care and we will see you as soon as possible .

Re Warwick Shadows Guitar Club Twenty Years Celebration,
I am always delighted to hear good news like this!
It still warms my heart that there are clubs like yours all over the world
still keeping the music alive after all this time.
Pass on my good wishes to all the guys (and maybe girls)

sending this to you all
on the 5th October 61 years since we started this incredible journey!!
My best to you all,
