MEETINGS 2021-22

 

In view of the Covid-19 risks, and continually changing restrictions, the Society’s Council decided that up to June 2021 we should hold meetings via Zoom.  As from September, we plan to restart meetings at St Mary’s Church Hall, Wrotham Road - The first 2 meetings are for members only. but please be aware meetings may have to change to Zoom if Covid-19 restrictions are reintroduced.  The following list will be amended in the event of a speaker cancellation or a change in how a meeting is to be held.

All meetings will start at 7:30pm on the date shown – please arrive at the Hall (or join the Zoom session if via Zoom) in advance of that time.
