Society Newsletters



Our newletters are an innovation triggered by the 2020 pandemic.  It is our attempt to keep our members and friends in touch with our activities.  Each letter will include information about our plans, our finances, and our activities since we last reported.

We are also aiming to include an article in each new issue.  Members will be invited to contribute and will be sent a copy.   We hope the newsletters will become a 'must have' collection.   St Martin's Church and Skidmores will have copies.  Do pop in and take a look.
