In view of the on going corona virus / COVID-19 pandemic situation, for the foreseeable future – until at least the end of the current season in May – all our meetings will be held virtually, on-line using Zoom, following the success of our first virtual meetings.

We will resume normal meetings as soon as we can safely and practicably do so. This will depend on the developing situation, and government and society guidance, but we hope that it will be possible for the next season, starting in September.

This page will be kept up to date to show the current position, but all events are liable to  change at short notice.

Those speakers who have been unable to come and entertain us will be re-invited to do so at future meetings, hopefully in the next season.
