During these dangerous and unpredictable times we all need to do our best to protect ourselves, our loved ones and the whole country to help overcome this current pestilence.

To this end we would ask members to be very circumspect in using the For Sale and Wanted/Vendors and Innovators sections.

It doesn't take any scientific modelling to know that to avoid infection from a contagious scourge such as we have with us now is to avoid all external contact, therefore we all need to restrict movement beyond hearth and home to the absolute minimum.

In pursuit of this we ask members to refrain from the use of these forums, both for purveying and purchasing, as much as possible.

We will not be closing the forums as we recognise that impending financial hardship is looming for many of us as this plague continues, with its well-being, social and fiscal consequences, it may be that the imperative to generate some income becomes an essential priority for some.

Each individual will need to weigh the risks within the gravity of their own situation.

Be aware that regardless of the irresponsibly dangerous ideas, still held and promoted by a malign few corona virus deniers, that this scourge is no more serious and deadly than a bout of seasonal flu is complete attention seeking lunacy. All our thoughts and deeds have to be about what we can do to protect our families, our communities and our nation.
