We have heard that the Heinz Nixdorf Museum in Paderborn is now closed
“until further notice” because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Obviously our planned visit there in April cannot now take place.
We hope to be able to re-arrange the visit at a later date, though when that might
be is uncertain.
Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and for any unrecoverable expenditure
which you may already have made.
We do, however, suggest cancelling hotel reservations and travel arrangements.
It is with much sadness that we have learned of the passing of a valued friend of the CCS
– Margaret Sale.
It would be tempting to describe Margaret as the widow of the late Tony Sale, the co-founder of our society
– but she was much more than that.
Margaret it was who campained to save Bletchley Park for the nation and. as a Fellow of the
National Museum of Computing continued actively to support the work there until her
relatively recent ill-health prevented her involvement on its former scale.
Margaret was a charasmatic, “larger than life” figure who will be much missed.
