Speakers – April to December 2022

The Coronavirus has dis­rup­ted our normal weekly meet­ings and we have moved to Zoom meet­ings so that all mem­bers can remain safe at home and still enjoy a talk and fel­low­ship.

It is our inten­tion to hold two meet­ings per month on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month. The pro­gramme is still being pre­pared and fur­ther talks will be added to the list as below:
