Events

As we all know the Corona Virus has disrupted our programme of events. From 28th October we hope to resume monthly meetings as a hybrid combination of live and Zoom options. If you have not yet had a chance to set up and use Zoom then click here First Time Set Up/Use of Zoom for further advice and help. We recognise that not everyone is comfortable using Zoom so, where a speaker has agreed, we will record the presentation and provide members with a link to watch it.
