21 MAR 2022 "Miles of Aisles" Talk by Trevor Baker

Our group has a combination of talks and visits. The talks are mainly by guest speakers. Once a year we have short member talks on a topic such as famous people from the area. We do like to get out and visit interesting places like St Albans cathedral, museums, and historic locations nearby. We are a friendly group and enjoy teas and coffees together at the end of sessions, COVID allowing. Bring your own cup, part of our "Getting Greener" policy.
