Cancellation of lectures and other events

In the light of current government advice all lectures and other events organised by the Society and its special interest Sections and due to take place during April and May have been cancelled.  Similar activities organised by organisations affiliated to the Society and therefore shown in the Society's published programme for the current year may also have been cancelled.  Anyone planning to attend such activities is advised to check with the local society or other organisation.
