As you know our embassy tends to schedule major events on weekdays to allow for foreign visitors to attend, which is important to promote our country.
On the other side, many of our members find it hard, sometimes impossible, to attend events on weekdays. Many of you have tirelessly voiced this concern even in our most recent survey.
Therefore as your committee, it is our responsibility to make sure that your voices are heard.
As such this time we have successfully negotiated with the embassy to postpone the National Heroes Day celebration to a weekend day to allow for as many of you as possible, to attend.
Also taking into consideration the existential threat from the coronavirus,
We wish to inform you that the Embassy has agreed to postpone the celebration of Our National Heroes Day to Saturday 29th February.
We thank everyone who has informed us of their difficulties with the original intended date and we also thank the Embassy for listening to us
