Friday 22nd January
One of our group members has offered to lead a discussion on assessment of children instead of GCSE and A levels etc and feeding school children.

This will cover part of the session, and among other things we could discuss are:
The threat to American democracy; what now with Trump?;
Covid-19. Are we on the finishing straight.? How well are we doing? Could we have done better?
Brexit. How long will it be before we stop being bogged down and reach the sunlit golden uplands?
