Zoom has become popular in the last few months as a means of conducting online meetings. It was proposed that the France & Colonies PS follows suit. Could interested members please advise Chris Hitchen by email. Please let him know whether you would simply wish to view displays or whether you would be able to give a display as well. Those without a webcam can of course still view the displays but will not be seen by others.

Future information on Zoom meetings will only be sent to those who express an interest. Many will not be interested and we do not want to bother those members with unnecessary emails. Read more
