20 March 2020:
We were greatly saddened earlier this week when we were forced to the decision to cancel this year's PrimA project due to the serious risk to health and even to life posed by the coronavirus pandemic. Now safeguarding and social distancing is everyone's responsibility. We wish you well in the coming weeks and months, hoping that you, your families, your friends remain safe.
