In light of the coronavirus outbreak and the movement restrictions imposed by the government, we’ve had to cancel our April meeting, unfortunately. We’ll make a decision on the May and June meetings nearer the time. We hope to be able to reschedule postponed lectures at a future date.
Stay safe, everyone, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as circumstances allow.
We are sorry to say due to the recent coronavirus announcement we have to cancel our Study Day on Saturday. Please contact us if you have made a booking but not received an email from the Secretary.
We hope to reschedule the study day when events allow. Please also check on our website before attending the April meeting as this may also have to be cancelled.
