Chairman's Message 10th April 2020
FOAOTMAD Coronavirus Measures
"FOAOTMAD have been looking at how we can help members who are struggling at the moment due to the coronavirus epidemic. The biggest single issue that concerns us is that of members who are finding themselves out of work or their income has been reduced to a level that makes it is hard to make ends meet.
If you are in that position and your membership is due and you are considering not renewing then please drop us a line via the “Contact Us” page on our website. We will do all we can to ensure that you keep receiving the benefits of being a member up until at least September when we will review the situation again.
In another project we are adding a temporary page to our website where we will pin any offers of help from members of the old-time fraternity. So far we have a number of free lessons with links to the websites or Facebook pages. If you want to take advantage of or feel in a position to offer something yourself to the wider old-time community let us know, again, by dropping us a note on our “Contact Us” box on the website and we will add it to the page.
Hopefully putting all the offers in one place will make it easier to find what there is out there on offer.
We are continually monitoring the situation and looking at other ways we can help and will keep you in touch with things as they change."
