May and June meetings
The unprecedented disruption to everyday life caused by Covid-19 has impacted on all social activities.
The Society has postponed the May AGM and talk. Furthermore, the June walk has been cancelled.
It is hoped the 2020/2021 programme of talks can begin in September as usual.
Take care and stay safe.

The picture was taken from the roof of All Saints’ Church.
