Saturday Talks

From September 2020 we are staging our Saturday Talks by Zoom, which is an excellent platform for lectures as the speaker can share his powerpoint on our screens. Peter Jarman’s experience of this is that one can see and hear better than in the Methodist Hall! It is anticpated that talks will continue via Zoom for Spetember and October of 2021, and then plans may change.

We will try to keep the social aspects of the occasion by having a Chairman’s introduction and members’ questions.

Anna can walk you through setting up and using the Zoom app by phone if you request this.

Reminders about talks and the zoom links will be sent to all members at least three days in advance.

Recordings may be made, and if that happens all members will be notified of how to view them.

So do join the Zoom Talks and help to make it an occasion.
