Whilst the UK risk level of Coronavirus has been increased from low to moderate, the risk to individuals has not changed at this stage and it remains low. We continue to follow advice from the government, Public Health England and the World Health Organisation. Precautionary measures are in place, and we are monitoring the situation as it develops but it currently remains business as usual and events are going ahead as planned. Everyone is encouraged to maintain good hand and personal hygiene. All visitors to site are asked to follow the governments advice on travel and not come to site if they have been to one of the affected countries/regions, as detailed in the most up to date guidance.

Naturally we have been keeping in close contact with Warwick School over Covid19 and the latest guidelines are below. These were published on the 10th March 2020, with the statement “It remains the case there are no confirmed cases or any testing of pupils or staff across the Foundation for Covid-19”. We will keep you informed about any change in the situation – please check e-mails right up to the meeting dates in case of any last-minute change in advice.
PLEASE NOTE – THE APRIL WIAS MEETING HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED
After agonising over whether to hold last Thursday’s meeting, events seem to have moved very rapidly and the Committee have taken the decision to cancel the meeting on Thursday April 9th,’Bandstands: History, Decline and Revival’ by Paul Rabbitts. We have contacted Paul and we are currently working on finding an alternative date next season for him to give his talk. We are currently leaving the May and June meetings as ‘under review’, and will make a decision as events unfold in the coming weeks. 15th March 2020
ALL REMAINING WIAS MEETINGS THIS SEASON HAVE BEEN CANCELLED
Your Committee has decided to cancel all WIAS meetings for the remainder of this season. We shall review the situation in the summer. In the meantime, please use e-mail and the website as your link to the industrial heritage. As suggested in the Quarterly Newsletter, this could be just the chance to write that article, sort out those photos, or relate those work experiences for the benefit of the WIAS community. 17th March 2020
