Business Networking for the Construction Industry
As you will no doubt be aware, some of the measures restricting the opening of hospitality venues has now been relaxed, but the circumstances in which restaurants and bars can operate are far from normal and will be for the foreseeable future. Sadly this has led to the demise of a number of businesses, including Belgo which has been the home for FTC for nearly 10 years.
In light of what is occurring, the FTC managing members have carefully considered the viability for the Club to operate, firstly without a venue and secondly in the ever present shadow of Covid-19, particularly where there is no obvious end to the requirements for social distancing in the hospitality sector.
It is therefore with much sadness that we must announce that the Club will be unable to resume its gatherings from September 2020 and, in light of all of the circumstances including the health and safety of the members, it has been decided to wind up the Club with immediate effect.
We are sure you will understand that this was not an easy decision, but it has to be the right one based upon the safely of the attendees, including those of us with underlying health conditions, and the viability for the Club to run with limitations and constraints on the number attendees.
After the accounts have been inspected, we will advise if there are any rebates available to those that have paid in advance.
We thank you for loyalty and support for the last 17 years and wish you, your family and colleagues the best of health and prosperity for the future.
It is hoped that our paths will cross again very soon, but obviously not too closely!
