Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Submitted by Fred Birkbeck on 17 March 2020
The Kent Archaeological Society is continuing to follow and monitor official guidance from the UK Government and Public Health England carefully. It is of vital importance for us to ensure that any and all procedures are in place to support the health and well-being of our volunteers and membership.


Dear members and friends,

Following government guidance, to help combat the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we will be making a number of changes to the way that Society business is conducted in the foreseeable future.

With immediate effect all meetings, events, conferences and forums are cancelled. This means that the forthcoming Annual General Meeting in May is cancelled as well as all meetings of Council and the Committees. The Library and our facilities in Marsham Street are now shut and there will be no 2020 season on the Lees Court Estate. Archaeologia Cantiana and Newsletters will be produced as and when practicable.

We would encourage all members and affiliated groups to be mindful of up-to-date official guidance to minimise the spread of the virus particularly at meetings and events that they organise themselves.

Please also check the KAS website for continuous updates on local and Society events as and when further information is received or guidance issued.

Meanwhile please continue to follow official guidance on keeping yourselves and others safe.

Best wishes,

KAS Council
