UPDATE: Jenny Burgon and Don Martin MBE: 'An Appreciation of Beatrice Clugston'; Thursday 3rd March 2022

The video of 'An Appreciation of Beatrice Clugston', held on Thursday 3rd March, is now available for viewing on the Society's YouTube channel. As the recording was made during the 'live' meeting on 3rd March 2022, the soundtrack is of low fidelity, but it is sufficiently clear for the narration to be followed and understood.
