Talks at Monthly Meetings

Our programme of meetings recommenced using Zoom. The Zoom link is sent out to members by email shortly before each meeting. If you need to be reminded of the link just contact our chairperson with your name and membership number and he will send it to you. Please aim to join the meeting around 10.15am so that the talk can start promptly at 10.30am.

Whenever possible we hope to be able to run "hybrid" meetings - this means you have a choice between joining Zoom from home or coming along to Broadmead Baptist Church in Union Street from 10.00am, to watch the talk on Zoom on a screen there. This would give you the opportunity to socialise with others who attend and enjoy the tea, coffee and biscuits provided. If you are displaying any symptoms which could be COVID , please do not attend. You may wish to take a lateral flow test beforehand and wear a mask on the day.

Scroll down to see the varied programme of talks for the next few months. There will be a guest speaker followed by small groups to socialise, discuss the talk and then ask questions.

Some of our most interesting talks have been given to us by our own members. If you have a talk to offer about your career or your interest, or for any other information, do please contact Judy by clicking on the pigeon "send a message" link.
