We have been meeting face-to-face at our usual venue at Edinburgh College since resuming our meetings after the 2021 summer break, supplemented with simultaneous remote access by Zoom, and had anticipated at our December meeting that that would be the format of our next meeting (in January 2022) which would be preceded by our AGM, as notified in December in our Upcoming Events section. The surge in Coronavirus infection due to the omicron strain has since overtaken us, and Government guidance advises against more than 3 households meeting together and further, Edinburgh College’s policy is now that their facilities will not be available for off-campus use until at least January 24th (when their policy will be reviewed).
ENCC have decided that in view of the uncertainty even beyond January 24th regarding the possibility of meeting face-to-face, we should go ahead with our January meeting and the preceding AGM on Wednesday January 12 (7 pm) entirely remotely, using Zoom, as there is no certainty that we will be able to hold that meeting face-to-face in the near future, so they should not be postponed in anticipation of that. The minutes and agendas can be found here.
Any ENCC-ward resident wishing to attend should request the meeting access codes by email to us, as we do not display those codes on open forum.
