Annual General Meeting

Due to COVID-19 meetings are being held online using Zoom.
The Society hopes to resume meeting at the Augustine United Church as soon as conditions permit.
When possible these are on the last Monday of the month (September to April, but not December). The AGM is usually on the first Monday of June (to avoid the May Bank Holiday).

Meetings for the Society's 201st Session (2021-22) are currently being arranged.

A complete list of talks given to the Society since 2000 is available for reference.
