Groups

Most meetings are now closed, but some are opening up in  line with goverment recommendations.

Some Groups are running virtual meetings using Zoom.  The free Zoom facility can be used, but it has a 40 minute time limit.  To avoid this we have set up a shared Zoom facility, which does not have the time limit.  If your Group would like to use it, please check the Zoom Diary and contact the Webmaster . If your preferred slot is already taken, it may be possible to arrange a second slot for the same time.
