Circumstances have not improved enough for  us  to hold the June meeting safely.
Government rules do not allow us to gather together in  groups of any size and many of us  are still shielding or self-isolating.
Our next meeting after the summer break is planned for  Thursday September 17th, but there must be some doubt as to whether things will have improved sufficiently to allow this to go ahead.   So  hopefully our speaker will be  Dr. Graham Kemp,  talking on “Rogues and villains of Lancaster Castle”.

Take care of yourselves and keep safe. Hope to see you soon.
Watch this space for more information.
