It is with deep regret that I must advise that the Federations AGM/Convention on the 23rd April has been postponed until October 29th.  

The reason behind this difficult decision is of course the Coronavirus. Over the last few days the statistics have shown a considerable rise in cases and of course these numbers are the ones we know about so the potential for the actual figures to be higher is great.

The original date fell immediately after the Easter break when many thousands of people go on holiday for the first time in the year and in the current conditions the risk of more cases being brought back into our country was just to great to ignore. 

It would only have taken one person and not necessarily from within the BVSF to be a carrier at the Hotel and the potential for business interruption let alone illness (or worse) due to enforced quarantine was considerable. 

I will be trying to retain the same speakers for the new date and will advise in due course.  

The Hotel have confirmed that all bookings for April 23rd can be transferred to October 29th if this is acceptable to those that have booked. 

I must apologise for the disappointment but the health and safety of the Federation Members, their Strategic Partners, guests and speakers must come first. 

Neither the Management Committee nor I could ever forgive ourselves if we caused  illness or financial problem within a company when effectively we could have avoided it.
