The Society usually runs an annual programme of six talks on the second Thursdays of alternate months. These are normally held at the Yew Tree Hall in High Lorton. However, currently our talks are delivered by Zoom and to members only, up to and including July, but you can join. Other events will be added to this programme as circumstances permit.

For the Zoom talks members need an email address. Please see the poster.

Talks normally start at 7.30pm
