Current Programme

Due to the Coronavirus all 2020 face-to-face MVGS meetings are cancelled until further notice. On-Line meetings are being conducted using Zoom.

2021 Programme

Dates for lecture meetings will follow the usual schedule: every second Thursday of the month – except for September - with no August meeting.  Due to the continuing uncertainties of Covid, talks for at least the first 3 months will be zoomed. Thereafter, at this time, who knows. The dates for the Gower trip, postponed from this year, are fixed around the timing of the tides. Day excursions that could not be run this year will hopefully be run at dates to be announced later.
