Meetings 2020/21

Meetings Programme during 2020/2021 (see also the Newsletter)

Due to Covid restrictions we had to cancel our 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.
