WTU3A August 2020 Newsletter

23 August, 2020


The August Newsletter has now been published.  Read the details here.   

Our Speaker Secretary, Heather Marshall, has done a splendid job of finding interesting and diverse speakers over the three years she was in the role, but has now handed over the reigns to our new Speaker Secretary, Simon Evers.  

Simon has had a real challenge on his hands of late, as many of the speakers that were booked for the rest of the year did not wish to provide their talks over the Zoom platform, so he has had to start afresh!  To whet our appetites, Simon has provided us with a synopsis of the speakers and the talks he has booked for our August, September and October virtual meetings.  Read the details here.
