Coronavirus Emergency

During the Coronavirus Emergency the monthly Branch Meetings in physical venues cannot be held.

The use of digital meetings is being actively researched with the aim of giving members a forum for their interests and research during the restrictions.

The previous Branch Programme is included here to show the intended range of topics to be presented.  However the Coronavirus Emergency cut the Programme short.
