CORONAVIRUS – September 2021
The easing of lockdown has now allowed most activities to resume.
Booking indoor events is still very challenging, so we are not likely to be able to plan as far ahead as normal this year, please bear with us!
Weekly Climbing – Tuesday Night
We meet at Creation Climbing Wall, 582 Moseley Road Moseley, B12 9AA from 7.30pm onwards every Tuesday. SMC members receive discounted entry for indoor climbing plus free tea! Prospective members are welcome, climbing experience is not needed but please tell us in advance if you wish to join us. We then go to The Prince of Wales in Moseley for a drink and banter from 10pm-11pm.
Monthly Committee Meeting
Pre-coronavirus, we held Committee Meetings at Old Edwardians Sports Club (“Old Ed’s”), Streetsbrook Road, Solihull B90 3PE. Members and prospective members could come along to find out what is going on and to make their contribution.
Meetings are now online via Zoom, or at a committee members’ house or garden, coronavirus restrictions permitting.
Next meeting – Thursday 9th Sept 2021 at 8pm, Old Edwardians Sports Club, Streetsbrook Rd, Solihull
Annual General meeting
Our AGM (and a preceding EGM) will be held on Thursday 23rd September 2021 at 8pm by Zoom.
