Update on Imjin Lunch 2021

From the Somerset Branch R&RGBW Association

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great sadness and reluctance that similar to the Back Badge event, we have to announce that the Annual (this year 70th Anniversary) Imjin Commemorative Lunch at Taunton RFC on Sunday 25th April 2021 is now cancelled.

This decision by the organising committee was not taken lightly but given the Government’s guidelines on public gatherings, the proposed vaccination programme and the fact that the majority of guests are those at risk/severely at risk, we felt that there was no other option open to us.

This notification will be sent later today to all webmasters, Facebook admins, other associations and key information addressees; to ensure an accurate, timely and co-ordinated announcement is made.

Whilst this is obviously disappointing news for all of us, it has made the committee even more determined to continue this outstanding event in the future when circumstances have improved and personal safety can be assured.

Yours aye

Martin Talling Secretary & Treasurer
