Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, during the past 2 years all of our club meetings have been "virtual" meetings on Zoom. We are pleased to announce that we now feel it is right to recommence face-to-face meetings at the Quay Church from 26 April, but for those of you who are still uncomfortable about meeting face-to-face we are hoping to make these hybrid meetings, with a simultaneous Zoom feed where appropriate.
During the pandemic we introduced additional Zoom meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, and as these have proved to be so successful, they will be continuing on Zoom. These intermediate meetings will be largely member-led with presentations and activities by and for members. Zoom links will be sent out to all members a few days before each meeting.
