Important information from the NWRS Committee about the ASM 2017
We have just received very unfortunate news from The Lodge Hotel – the planned location for the ASM 2017 – which means we must find a new location for the ASM:
“It is with deep regret that I wish to inform you that due to a change in our personal circumstances (regarding my health) we are unable to fulfil your booking for April. I completely understand your disappointment, but we feel we have no option, as myself and wife are the main hosts and organisers for the hotel. We will reimburse your deposit. Please again accept our deepest apologies. Regards, Neil.”
We obviously hope Neil’s health improves very soon.
So where do we go from here? Well we get on with life and sort things out differently. So…
No-one had actually paid any money to ‘The Lodge’ for accommodation and they are returning the deposit paid by the Society so there is no financial loss, as it were.
The venue will obviously have to change and the price at a new venue may be higher (probably will be if we are realistic). We have been looking at places in Llandudno, but many are already booked. We have found one venue for the conference which is available and one hotel which is available so ‘watch this space’.
Sorry this is so ‘sketchy’ but we felt we needed to inform as many members as possible as soon as possible. As soon as new arrangements are sorted we will let you know.
