Club Newsletter

Our Club News is a regular, usually monthly sometimes bi-monthly, round-up of ‘What we do’. We include reports and photographs from the wide range of Club activities, summaries of the talks given by our visiting speakers, and other items of interest.



Do you have a topic you'd like to give a short (15-20 minutes) after - lunch talk or presentation on? Our Club welcomes approaches from speakers addressing informational, educational or public-awareness issues.
