It was with great regret that we were forced to cancel Saturday’s Leeds Furmeet due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19. We are aware that the news was met with disappointment, but we thank you for the understanding you have shown. In light of the current circumstances, we felt it was the only decision we could make.
With the Government and NHS advocating social distancing to prevent the spread of the virus, we are also aware that this could lead to mental health problems and feelings of loneliness. Added to this is the dislocation felt by the increased uncertainty the virus has brought with it, in terms of our way of life but also the threat to our loved ones and livelihoods. It is clear that we need each other more than ever and that looking after each other will become increasingly important in the coming weeks. We are a global community, but we are also a local community, and we are all in this together.
In lieu of running a physical meet at our usual venue on Saturday, we have decided to launch our first Leeds Discord Social, or LDS, from noon. You will be able to find us here: https://discord.gg/twWsgtd
Everyone is welcome, if you’re local to Leeds or further away, as we don’t see why this virus should stop us from socialising with each other. So, grab your drink of choice, fire up your machine and join us throughout the afternoon on Saturday. Proceedings will begin at noon with our traditional fursuit walk around your own front rooms at the usual time of 2:30pm. We look forward to seeing you.Back to all News and Reports
