BAFM is undertaking a survey to learn the views locally about the impact of the virus to local groups. The link is Please participate; we value your opinions. It is worth emphasising that:

  • we know people can only give first impressions and personal feelings at this time
  • we will follow up when the position becomes clearer
  • responses can be made by anyone. They need not be committee members. (This is because committees will not be meeting at the moment and we don’t want people to hold back because they feel they do not have authority to respond. This is about personal impressions at this stage. When groups are able to get back in business we can follow up with more targeted research.)
