August 2020 Newsletter is here

Welcome to August’s issue of our newsletter. This month we bring you details of a couple of events to look forward to, one of which is a Virtual Vernissage of Kath Orsman’s beautiful embroidered pictures, planned for the autumn. There is an opportunity to commission a unique and original piece of art, perhaps from a picture of a beloved pet or country scene.

And this coming Saturday, why not visit Thezan les Beziers for the La Ligue sale – held in the open air on 1st August.

There’s also a reminder about this year’s Walks for Life and how to register, and the usual page of “What’s New in Cancer Research”.

Walks for Life 2020

Walks for Life 2020

Not to be thwarted by these uncertain times, a dauntless team at CSF-L has devised a flexible and fun new format for our ever-popular annual fundraising event, Walk for Life.

New Name, New Format

Newly named WALKS for Life, the 2020 event proposes that smaller groups of friends and families organise individual walks or cycle rides of their choice – which can be known and loved, or new and unexplored – of any length and on any day between 1st and 27th September. This new format allows for anyone to take part, wherever they are.

More details may be found at the Walk for Life page on this website.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

Wearing masks in enclosed public spaces – advisory now, REQUIRED from next week, week commencing 20 July 2020.
On 14 July 2020, President Macron announced that wearing face masks in enclosed public spaces would be law from 1 August 2020.
On 15 July 2020, Prime Minister Castex brought this forward to next week (probably from Monday 20th or Tuesday 21st). Shortly afterwards, the Health Secretary, Olivier Véran, said that people in France should always wear a mask now in enclosed public places and not wait for next week’s decree.
Further information will be made available by the French government, including what sanctions, including fines, are likely to be put in place.
