Restrictions on meetings and lack of available space have meant that there have been no monthly meetings since February. Before everyone finds something else to do on the last Monday morning of the month, the committee thought it would be a good idea to start up our regular talks, but to hold them via an online conference, using Zoom. Apart from a few who had technical issues, the first meeting was well attended and feedback was positive. The next talk will take place on:
Monday talk: 11am on 25 January 2021
