Virtual Monthly Demo


Thursday 11th June


By Vicki Norman


We had a great response to the first virtual demo with over 85 members signed in. Below is the finished picture. See Past Events for more detail and links to the recording of the demo.


As you may know, the most up to date Government health advice was issued last night which asks us all to avoid non-essential contact with others and stop all unnecessary travel.

In the circumstances, the Management Team has decided to suspend the Society’s meetings with immediate effect until further notice.  

We will keep the situation under review, and hope that this situation does not continue for too long a period.

We will review everything on a regular basis and keep you all informed but please also check on the website for our latest update.
