Members Night – Thursday 29th November 2018

Members are invited to contribute their work or presentations for this night. It is hoped that some members will have created AV presentations following Tony’s  session in early November  but many other subjects are positively welcomed. Please let Paul or Simon know on what subjects you would like to present by Tuesday 27th November.

We have three members kindly come forward with presentations, but we are still looking for more members to make their contributions to the night. These are held so that members can present their work to all of us, or ask questions or discuss burning items for them. If any of you have something you would particularly like input on, then please ask the question to the Paul or Simon in the same way, and we will try to find someone who will talk on this for everyone.  Please contribute.
