Talks & Events 2020/21
Our meetings are normally held in St Mary’s Church, Kirtlington, on the first Wednesday of the month from October to April at 7.45pm. However, they are currently being held on Zoom. Given that, we are not charging an admission fee to non-members and, for this year, there is no annual subscription. However our work around the village continues and we welcome donations in lieu of membership. Please either give your donation to one of the committee members or contact Ian Stone (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Internet payment details.
Our lectures for the current season are as below.
