It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the Rail Freight Group Christmas Lunch 2020 will not go ahead.
The Christmas Lunch is the highlight of our events programme, and we know how much our members and guests enjoy it. So it is not an easy decision for us to cancel this year’s event.
However, with large events still restricted, and social distancing measures in place, we cannot find a meaningful way to proceed. Even if these restrictions were to change during the autumn, which appears unlikely, we would not then have time to arrange the event.
Our principal concern is to ensure the safety of all our members, guests and staff, and I hope you will all understand why we have reached this conclusion.
We continue to monitor Government advice and will look for opportunities to hold physical events for members as soon as it is possible to do so safely. In the meantime, please do participate in our ongoing webinar programme.
We have booked the hotel for Christmas 2021, so please feel free to put Wednesday 8th Dec 2021 in the diary.
