Covid-19 - New Arrangements for 2020/2021

In the light of the ongoing problems with the Corona virus, we are providing this season’s lecture series via the Zoom web platform. The first presentation was at 8:00 pm on Wednesday 14th October. The details of the speakers are here.

Our room in the Cottingham Civic Centre is booked for this season, so we can restart as soon as possible!  Note that the Zoom meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month.

We will keep in touch via this website, and with members via email, when we have further details. If you have images for the Gallery or news for the Events page (less likely obviously!) do send them and the website will be up updated regularly.

Take care everyone, and stay safe!
