We would like to thank you for your support through this strange year and hope that you enjoyed those Lectures and Study Days which did take place. We have planned another great programme for the forthcoming year. It is, of course, still uncertain as to when we can all meet again and, taking the situation into account, your committee has decided to reduce the fees for this year. We do hope that you will renew your membership and continue your support of the Society by clicking here to download a renewal form.
