Covid 19 update

Because of the uncertainty and ongoing government coronavirus restrictions, it is with great sadness that we have decided to postpone our lunchtime lecture on Monday 9th November. 

Speaker Charlotte Le Marquand however, has kindly agreed to reschedule her talk to next year, ie Monday 8th November 2021. Meanwhile, Geoffrey Kibby, whose Spring lecture this year was cancelled, has confirmed he is happy to give his talk on fungi on Monday 22nd March 2021.

Full details will be included with our Autumn/Winter issue of Review, due to be distributed in mid-November. Those who had booked for our now-cancelled November lecture will be contacted shortly and asked whether they’d like their booking rolled over to Spring 2021 or be refunded.
