However, we are holding fortnightly "virtual" meetings using Zoom, which can be downloaded free of charge for your PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone. Members will be sent a link to access each meeting a few days before. You can, if you would prefer, join a meeting using audio only, with video switched off.
