It is with much regret that we have decided to postpone presenting the 2019 Anderson Medal to Professor Crosbie Smith, which was due to have taken place at the Leopold Muller Lecture Theatre of the National Maritime Museum on Thursday 23rd April.
As you will all be aware, coronavirus – covid19 is causing many concerns nationally and we are unsure what the position will be in the next month or so regarding aspects such as closure of museums, etc.. We are also aware that many members who wish to attend this event would be using public transport and may also be elderly or have underlying health problems. It is with these thoughts in mind that we have decided to postpone the presentation for the moment.
We will be in contact with Professor Smith regarding an alternative date, possibly in September but, rest assured, we’ll keep all our members informed as/when we can regarding future events.
With all best wishes
Hon. Secretary SNR
