Speakers – to Sept 2024

As we return to normal after the disruption caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, during which we had a very successful series of ‘Zoom’ presentations, we are currently holding ‘face-to-face’ meetings every first and third Monday of the month (except on Bank Holiday Mondays), with our guest speakers joining us at Fulwood Sports Club (10 for 10.30am). There is also an additional speaker meeting on May 13 to compensate for the Early May Bank Holiday.
