Our group is for those members interested discussion on a wide range of topics in Science and Technology.
It is hoped that members within the group will give presentations or lead discussion on topics in which they have a particular interest. We also intend to invite speakers with particular expertise which are of interest to us. Visits to places of industrial and scientific activity are arranged.
We are a new group and still exploring the possibilities open to us
