Tea and Coffee will be available from 9.30 am. The start time is 10.00 am (to allow for some administration tasks) with the meeting officially beginning at 10.30.

You will need to download Zoom on to your computer or other device. Please contact us to get the Zoom meeting ID and link.

Please be aware that we will mute all participants at the beginning of the meeting. This is to avoid problems with participants not realising they are live on air and chatting etc which can affect the sound quality of the presentation. If you have any questions during the presentation we would invite you to use the CHAT function to email your questions which our speaker will address at the conclusion of her presentation.

It is a brave new world so please bear with us!
