It is with great sadness that we hear that the European Haiku Society will cease to operate shortly.

This is due to various factors including Luca Cenisi's serious health concerns.


Luca says (extract):
QuoteWe will grant the delivery of the awards to the EHP winners, but from now on all the EHS activities will be suspended till the permanent closure of the Organization.

Thank you for having supported us during this year.

For any further information, please contact us at info@haikusociety.eu.

Sincerely

Luca Cenisi

NO, please say it isn't so.

I did not know Luca had been ill.

Reminds me I should contact him so he has my new home address to send my certificate to.

Alas all true, running an official not for profit organisation is not easy, especially if the main person is desperately ill.

Thanks Alan.
I'm trainable.

Luca was one of the Judges on the Italian Matsuo Basho Cherry Blossom Contest.
My certificate is not for the Europen Haiku Society Contest.
