Members who have booked and paid for events which have been postponed (because of Covid) will be contacted by the organiser as soon as a new date is confirmed and given first refusal for a new booking.   Those members who are unable to attend on the new date will be given a credit redeemable indefinitely as payment for any future TVN event(s).  We trust that members will understand that issuing refunds is very complicated, time consuming and  requires postal addresses and stamps.
