As we are hopefully coming to the end of the lockdown and optimistically looking forward, in the not too distant future, to be able to socialise at our monthly meetings again we are pleased to announce that with the help of our new treasurer Derek the zoom lectures from the UK are now going to take place. There are three lectures scheduled from April onwards and these are listed on the newsletter. I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big vote of thanks to you our loyal members for being so understanding during the pandemic and to my Committee for being such a strength in this difficult times. I am sorry to announce that one of our stalwarts Suzie is stepping down and I wish her well in all her ventures on your behalf. In the on coming season for the Society which normally begins in September we are hoping to introduce days of special interest and trips to the United Kingdom on specialist themes visiting interesting collections. I hope you enjoy the zoom lectures and that this may encourage friends and relations to join the Society.
