Meetings Programme during 2020/2021 (see also the Newsletter)
Due to Covid restrictions we had to cancel our 2020 AGM. We had planned our usual programme of physical meetings for 2020/21 but again we have not been able to hold them due to continuing Covid restrictions. However we will experiment with remote meetings via Zoom starting with a Pot-Pourri on 15 January 2021.
If this is successful we will hold further talks using Zoom.
