Corona Virus restrictions

Our use of the hall at Woolmer Green is subject to restrictions before, during and after meetings which as a Society we are unable to respond to. Unless, of course, the Covid pandemic restrictions are lifted, our meetings booked for September to December are now cancelled. The Society is planning provisional dates for meetings during 2021 but the situation is still uncertain and is likely to remain so.

Planned virtual meetings

However, we have been in consultation with some of our speakers to give their talks by Zoom or similar virtual means on the same dates in September, October , November and December. The details of these meetings are as follows:
