Topics for 2019

The following programme from Wednesday 4th September to Wednesday 18th December 2019.

We are going to introduce a short piece on the political leaders (around 15 mins) at the end of the weekly meetings. This may provide additional room to explore other topics in December as we may have discussed the political leaders as part of our planned discussion's. This is an experiment and should it be found to be beneficial then there will be two slots in December for other topic's other than politic's.As a group we can monitor how this idea progresses or not as the case may be.
