AUTUMN PROGRAMME – a message from the Programme Secretary

We are keeping all digits crossed that we will soon be in a position to begin Society meetings again:

  • Autumn 2021
    We hope very much that we will be able to arrange the monthly evening meetings for September, October, and November this year. The aim is to have some local speakers on local topics. Please, therefore, note the following dates for your diary at 8.00 pm at Church House, Churchyard, Hitchin –

    • Thursday 23rd September
    • Thursday 28th October
    • Thursday 25th November

We do not yet know what, if any, ‘strings’ will be attached to the lifting of restrictions on social contact due later this month. If limits are placed on the numbers that venues can accommodate, we will, of course, be dependent on any conditions set by Church House; if it proves necessary to regulate numbers in advance of each meeting, we will arrange some form of pre-booking system.
Once meeting conditions are clearer, we will also be able to decide whether or not we can go ahead with our December social evening which is tentatively set for Thursday 2 nd December.
The plan will be to circulate all Members (by e-mail where possible and post if necessary) at the end of
August with confirmation and more precise details of the meetings that are planned. If, in the meantime, you have any questions please let me know.

  • Programme 2022
    If circumstances do indeed allow a move back to normal meetings, we intend to organise a full Programme for 2022 on the usual pattern. Details of this will be ready for All Member circulation with the January Newsletter.
    Here’s hoping….
