We all know businesses are being hit hard by the pandemic, and this is reflected in the decision by the West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce to postpone its events for one month.
In a post on its website the chamber wrote:
With the recent uncertainty surrounding the spread of Coronavirus, West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce has decided that events planned over the coming weeks should be postponed to allow for changes brought in by company policies and/or government.
We are currently looking to deliver some of our events programme and training courses as online interactive sessions and further details will be released when available.
This decision has been taken proactively to ensure our events can be re-arranged with as little disruption as possible and we ask for your understanding in this matter.
That means the York Annual Dinner on 26 March at the National Railway Museum has been postponed till September.
Pop star turned vicar and broadcaster the Rev Richard Coles was the guest speaker this year.
