Coronavirus and LRTA meetings
The well-being and security of our members and supporters is a priority for the Association and with this in mind the LRTA is following advice from the National Governments within the UK . Some physical meetings are being planned in some Local Areas whilst others are holding online meetings as listed below. Functional Groups are holding their meetings online.

Members are encouraged to keep in touch and engage via our discussion groups. There is an ongoing review of the situation as Government advice is revised.
