  Coronavirus - temporary free membership of OLG
From: Margaret Parker
Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2020 18:34:06 GMT

Because of the outbreak of coronavirus a number of terrestrial Guilds have already cancelled their regular meetings and in the days to come more people may be in self isolation.
 
In response to this the OLG is offering free membership for a limited time until the current situation changes.
 
Participants will have access to all the OLG resources including files, photos and workshops but will not receive a copy of the Journal. Technical help will be available for those less certain of their ability with emails and the internet
 
To join via this scheme participants simply email the Convenor, Margaret Parker:
 
parker@aireweave.co.uk

 

with their postal address so that a printed Welcome Pack can be sent direct to them.
 
At the end of this temporary scheme they will be offered the choice of paying their membership at the relevant rate or of leaving the OLG as they so wish.
 
This information, in the form of a poster, is available here
