Message to attendees of Pioneer Robert Owen’s Impact Learning lessons for co-operation & education – postponement till Autumn

We are very sorry to inform you that Chris Williams, our speaker, has just tested positive for Covid having been unwell for the last few days. In the circumstances we have decided to postpone his 2nd July 2022 talk.

Chris says “appreciate this will be extremely frustrating for you, as it is for me. I will be more than happy to look for another date (early Autumn) to deliver the talk if that is thought suitable. My sincere apologies — having been Covid free until now I had been hoping I might avoid it altogether”.

Co-ops & Mutuals Wales will contact attendees with a new date when we can agree this with Chris who has our best wishes. Thanks for your patience.
