2021-22 Programme

In tribute to the Society’s late member and near centenarian, Miss Susan Ross, the 2021-22 programme has been designed as a celebration of women with talks by women or on women’s history and achievements. 

The autumn talks will be delivered ‘live’ by Zoom with recordings available afterwards on the Society’s YouTube channel. Advance notice will be provided by email and on this website along with joining instructions for those wishing to virtually ‘attend’ the talk.
