Due to the ongoing difficulties with Covid 19 we have of course been unable to resume our meetings and all the speakers for the 2020 programme have been cancelled. They have all expressed a willingness to be re-engaged once we are able to begin a new programme. There is as yet no sign of when we may be able to do this. Once it is possible it may be that we will need to fill the first few slots of the new programme with talks from members. If you have anything that you would like to present please contact Nigel Craik (secretary).
