President’s Letter

November 2020

Dear Members,

I very much look forward to welcoming you to the events that are planned for the coming year. In uncertain times I felt it was good to maintain as much normality as possible so the meetings are scheduled for the same day and time as usual but of necessity will be virtual with connection via Zoom.

If you have not tried Zoom before do try. It is amazingly easy. The App is free to download on iPads and tablets. Our committee, and in particular our secretary Mike Cheesbrough and deputy secretary Ruhy Parris, have worked really hard to produce a very interesting programme. Ruhy Parris will be the host for Zoom. On behalf of us all, thank you.

Of course the Society is also about seeing one another and socialising. I hope that by the time of our annual outing in May 2021 this will be possible. The Society Bicentenary is in August 2021 and I am grateful to Ailsa Gebbie for leading the planning of a major celebration of our founder Andrew Duncan’s many varied achievements in October 2021.

Meantime, I wish you all well and do enjoy what promises to be a very interesting series of talks.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Janet Jenkins,
