Historically the Society has organised two one-day meetings in various parts of the country each year, together with an Annual General Meeting in or near London during June or July. We are very sorry that this has not been possible since the Covid-19 restrictions were introduced in the spring 2020.
BUT there is always a silver lining and our Zoom meetings give many more members from all over the world a chance to attend and take part!
