  2020 - 2021 session meetings:

Our next physical meeting will be in Spring 2021 or thereafter as permitted by regulations.

Wearing a mask or face covering reduces the severity of infection in you by up to 80%, so you do not get hospitalised or severely ill, per many reports as of 01 Sept 2020.
Your own imune system may cope without hospitalisation.

20200506 Record and thanks for actions in and around Culcheth and Leigh.

In this time, when the 'lock down' of people to their homes during the Covid-19 disease caused by a coronavirus SARS-COR-2 emanating from P.R. China has incapacitated many firms and persons from normal activity, we should record the past actions of a local charity that is  now closed  which gave good support to ex-service-people in the area over the past few years.

Please see our report  20200506 StoS.

The Raven Inn. (Still unresolved)

CLHG gets action in other places : British Archaeology

The magazine of the Council for British Archaeology ["CBA"] "British Archaeology"  in their May/June 2019 issue have considered the Raven Inn to be similar to Carlton Tavern, York case and discuss both in their article 'casenotes 43 ' by Bob Sykes, the CBA's listed buildings caseworker for  England. The CBA considered the original planning application for the Raven Inn flawed (with a considerable number of mistakes) and would result in "total loss" and the "harm" would be considerable. Thus they lodged an objection. They noted that the original planning application was withdrawn just as they went to press. This was as a result of a CLHG member advising them of the application to demolish the Raven Inn.

 In the March 2019 edition of Culcheth Life issue 192 , it is reported that  the campaigners
for the 'saving' of The Raven Inn have had some success.

"Facebook Group".  (Applicants need to join the group as it a "closed group".)

The campaigners have set up a "closed group" on Facebook. Where only members of the group may read  entries. Should you wish to join the campaign group, you can register to join on the group page.    https://www.facebook.com/groups/helpsavetheraveninn/
