A Message from the Chair - Valerie Walker

Sadly, we were unable to meet last year (2020) for our always popular and well-attended Annual Summer Conference because of the uncertainties and limitations of living at a time of pandemic.

A huge additional cause for sadness, and unavoidable change for our Society, was the unexpected death in early May 2020 of our much-loved and respected President David Dawson.

Life has not yet returned to ‘normal’ and it has been agreed by the UMS Committee that the demands and pressure of organising a full three-day conference while the future is still unclear were untenable. So our busy organising sub-group has begun planning a One-Day Virtual Summer Conference, aiming to include as many aspects of our usual gatherings as time allows.

As you will see, we have also been asked to provide a one-hour session at the Unitarian Societies Day. We are hoping this will introduce many new people to our activities, as we also hope will our One-Day Conference when we also look forward to giving a mini-tribute to David who was so important to the Society and who encouraged and enthused young and old to make and enjoy music in many different ways.

Gather the spirit through music
