Syllabus 2020/21

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis there may be changes and updates to the listed syllabus.

This year’s syllabus has been put together with the aim of providing a full and “normal” programme of events for you, but allowing also for the possibility of continuing disruption from “lockdown”.

At the time of writing, the Church hall is still not open and we have no idea when it might be, but there is still a chance (however slender) that it may be by September. Things are very fluid and changing almost day by day, as the process of easing lockdown continues.

While the Church Hall is not open, meetings will be held where possible via Zoom, a video conferencing product. Members can expect emails with details, or if you would like more information you can get it touch via our Contact Form.
