Talks and visits


Talks at St James’s church hall restarted in October! Please come along.

The conditions laid down for our use of the hall are necessarily under continual review, but are at present: those who come to a talk are asked to:

♦ use hand sanitiser at the entrance;

♦ to wear a face covering;

♦ to provide contact details (only for visitors – members’ details are already with the Society);

♦ to observe social distancing. Seats will be spaced well apart from each other, and windows will be open.

Cheering cups of tea will be provided!
