FORTHCOMING MEETINGS 2020
Please take note of the advice on the Welcome page regarding forthcoming meetings.

The meetings planned for October in Salisbury, London and Rotherham have sadly had to be cancelled. The pandemic is now worsening again and gatherings of more than 6 are now not possible. That effectively means that physical meetings can no longer take place.

When things improve then Convenors will arrange meetings as soon as practical. It may well not be feasible to advise these in the Journal in advance.

Please consider using the FORUM in the meantime - perhaps share your latest acquisitions or any query or comment you may have. If you have not registered as a member, please contact the Website Manager with your preferred pasword and a Username will be provided. 

All Society services continue as normal, it is only meetings that are off limits for the time being.
