AN Easter Ross lunch club is being put on hold for now because of concerns over the coronavirus crisis.

It had been hoped to restart Invergordon Social Club's highly successful Tuesday lunch club for the over 70s this week.

However due to a recent surge of Covid cases and the restrictions on households mixing indoors, the group has taken the decision to postpone its continuation.

Sharing the information, Cromarty Firth councillor Maxine Smith said: "We must protect our elderly who are the most vulnerable.

"We will keep abreast of government rules regarding Covid and wait for the current increase in coronavirus spreading to reduce substantially. When it is deemed safe to do so we will re-open.

"Please pass on this message to anyone you know who is attending and we will also attempt to contact them.

"Many thanks to all of our volunteers meantime. You can take a longer break."

And she added: "We WILL definitely re-open the lunch club but only when the pandemic is easing off again."
