Also for the lectures it would be most helpful if you could let us know if you intend to attend. We need to keep to social distancing and restrict numbers as we return very cautiously to a more normal programme.

With this cautious return we are investigating the possibility of offering our postponed residential trip to East Sussex and Kent. We will let you know as soon as possible if this could go head.

For payments we would also prefer where possible to pay us by BACs or cheque rather than cash. Please ask for details.

Kind regards
Rose and Robin Horspool
