Happy New Year!

Covid safety measures continue to mean that we will be unable to meet in person next term. In response, we have put together another exciting programme of online talks using Zoom.

To take part, please email Allan Sutherland at asutherland04@gmail.com and let him know which sessions you wish to attend. He will then send you the link for that session so you can join in from the comfort of your own home. You can either attend the whole block or individual sessions, whichever you prefer. All sessions will take place on Thursdays and begin at 10.00 and end at 12.00. They will be in two parts: the first part will comprise the presentation, followed by a short break, then the second session will be for Q&A and Discussion.

If anyone would like help in gaining confidence with Zoom please contact Allan who will be happy to help.
