During the Pandemic please keep yourself and others safe by maintaining your physical distance from others – science suggests at least 2m to be on the safe side. You can now travel for daily exercise, to work if you cannot work from home or to assist someone more vulnerable. However, you should only meet one person from a different household, but it would obviously be safer if you avoid contact with other people completely, despite the government’s apparent return to herd immunity.

PLEASE NOTE THAT DDOS MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL JANUARY 2021 DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID CRISIS.
