In the current circumstances, many of our previously planned events have had to be cancelled or postponed. Instead, we have launched an imaginative series of ‘virtual’ activities which members of the Company are invited to join from the security of their own homes. This includes a series of webinars, also open to non-members. Details are circulated as more virtual events are confirmed and the programme will continue until more traditional events become possible. The revised programme for the remainder of the year is here.
