The health, safety and wellbeing of our members and committee members is of the utmost importance to us. In line with the latest official government advice, the Society has now cancelled all events and meetings up until the end of June 2020.

The Symposium planned for September is still in place and we continue work to keep things on track. As a committee we plan to review the situation again in mid-May.

If anyone needs any help with bookings, plans, information etc, please contact a committee member.
