Wednesday morning virtual meeting

In spite of the gradual easing of restrictions, there is no immediate prospect of our Wednesday morning meetings recommencing in the form that we are all used to. In the meantime, we have arranged for a talk from one of our very popular previous speakers – Tom Way, wildlife photographer – which you can join live, via Zoom, on Wednesday, 8th July.

You may remember that Tom visited us a couple of years ago and talked about his trips around the world photographing lions, elephants and other large animals. This time, he will talk to us about “Wildlife on Your Doorstep” and will show us some of the wonderful photographs he has taken closer to home.

There will be a limit of 100 places for this talk and it is a live event that will not be recorded, due to copyright, so be sure to book your place as soon as you can.

To access the application form for places, click here.

At the same time, you will be able to indicate whether you would like some help to familiarize yourself with Zoom beforehand, if you are not yet confident using it. We will arrange some short “taster” sessions for small groups so that you can try the system and see how easy it is.

If you have any problems with using the form, or if you have any questions about the event, please email:-
