Chichester Branch Programme

Chichester Branch Programme 2020-21



All presentations will be via Zoom (unless social distancing rules are relaxed to allow public meetings).


Members will need to sign up for ZOOM (it is free unless you are taking out a subscription).


There will be no charge for participants, but in order to keep numbers to a manageable limit, details will be emailed out in good time prior to each meeting, and those wishing to participate will be asked to contact, via our email address 

They will then be given the ZOOM log-in details & password and opening time for the meeting.


All meetings will start at 7 p.m.
