The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is already being felt, but will increase in its severity over the next few weeks. As a precautionary action the NE RFCA has taken the decision to cancel our upcoming Annual General Meeting on 27 March at Northumbria University Officer Training Corps.
Our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, members and event attendees and we have been closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 for a number of days. After much consideration, we have made the decision to cancel all our Engagement event activities including the AGM, Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenants' Presentation Ceremonies, 607 RAuxAF Reception, and Group AFC Signings. We will continue to update you via our website to keep you informed of our situation.
