Our monthly meetings normally take place in the Seth Ward Community Centre, Luynes Rise, Buntingford, SG9 9SG on the second Monday of the month. Doors open at 1.30pm to give members and guests the opportunity to socialise over refreshments before the meeting commences at 2.15pm with the Guest Speaker starting at 2.30pm.
The schedule of monthly meetings is as follows:
Due to the current restrictions it is unlikely that we will be able to hold our normal monthly meetings in the Seth Ward Community Centre as this would not allow appropriate social distancing. Because of this, in June we had our first monthly meeting using Zoom video conferencing. This was very successful so we plan to continue using Zoom for our monthly meetings for the next few months. Since presenting on Zoom is very different from presenting in the hall, and is not suitable for all types of presentations, we are likely to use different speakers from those originally planned. The following programme of events therefore shows the normal dates for monthly meetings and the speakers will be added as they are confirmed. Note that the start time for monthly meetings on Zoom is 14:00.
