Current Programme

With the current easing of Coronavirus restrictions, we are tentatively re-starting our face-to-face meetings, whilst observing any necessary constraints such as social distancing, mask-wearing and hand cleanliness.  We will begin with this year's AGM in October and continue with November's scheduled lecture and see how it goes from there.  Should we need to, we can always return to on-line meetings, 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.
