Our programme during Coronavirus restrictions

THE BAD NEWS: All our face-to-face events are suspended owing to the Coronavirus outbreak.

THE GOOD NEWS: We are planning a full programme of events soon when we hope the restrictions will be less severe. Meanwhile we have many activities taking place using Zoom online meetings. Our Secretary can keep you informed of these and any other online events by email. Each email will include full joining instructions.

Regular monthly activities

Branch meetings

Our main Branch meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm. Currently they are held online using Zoom, but we are planning to restart in-person meetings in due course.

You can find a full list of planned meetings, with details of topics and guest speakers, here on our website.

Branch meetings are also listed in our welcome leaflet, which you can download here.
