Future PWG meetings plan in response to Covid-19
To all Members,
Due to the Cyprus's Ministry of Health and Interior announcement and action on 16th March 2020, we will not be able to hold our meetings face-to-face until 30th April, or until further notice from the Cyprus government.
Therefore, in an effort to help limit the spread of Covid-19 and at the same time, protect all of our members, PWG meetings will be held by Skype on Thursdays from 11:00am - 12:30pm.
This is the sensible solution for the time being, in order to comply with government regulations and to protect the well-being of all members, whilst still being able to meet, read, write and keep up that 'all-important' social contact that we, humans, need to survive.
