Meetings & Events

The following list details our range of meetings and observing sessions over the forthcoming weeks.  Admission to our meetings costs just £2.00 per person for society speakers and £3.00 per person when a guest speaker is in attendance.  These fees are used for the hire costs of the meeting venues and for the expenses of visiting guest speakers.  All meetings and events listed are open to all.  Please note that very occasionally it may be necessary for us to change the speaker or subject at short notice, where possible members will be advised beforehand via e-mail.  Our meetings programme is organised by Mrs Peta Jellis who would welcome suggestions for future speakers and topics.
