Well, we tried to get back to Face-to-Face Meetings :-(

We hope you will join us on April 13 at 3.30 pm online at our Zoom location. We tried to manage a face-to-face meeting but the conditions are too onerous for us to take on. Hopefully we will be able to meet somewhere next month.

The Zoom details will be sent to you the day before the meeting. If you have problems using Zoom, please don't hesitate to ask for help - email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
