Programme 2021

When the Covid situation allows, we intend to hold meetings as usual at The Barlow, Edgworth (formerly called The Barlow Institute), starting at 7.30 p.m.

Margaret Fletcher and Marlow Renton have kindly agreed to give their talks using Zoom. Starting in January these will be our first for nearly  a year. 

We hope that from March onwards we will be able, once again, to meet in person at the Barlow though caution may even then limit our numbers and may need to involve the use of Zoom.. Watch the web site and emails to see how this develops.

There is a charge of £1.50 for our Barlow meetings (£3 for non-members), which we hope will eventually be able to include interval coffee/tea and cakes.
