Talks at Monthly Meetings
Monthly Meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at 10:30, except for December when we have our Christmas Lunch. Meetings are in the Studio Theatre, Corran Halls.

Talks are given at most monthly meetings by both members and invited Speakers. All start after announcements at the meeting, at or before 11:30 and end by 12:30.

Alison Rennie organises the talks presented at monthly meetings. It you want to offer a talk by yourself or a friend or if you have any suggestions please contact Alison through our Contact Page.
A programme of talks is being organised for 2017-18. It is almost complete and will be announced soon. The first speaker in February 2018 will be:
