We have had to make some changes to the meetings programme as published in Hertfordshire People, Winter 2018. The Society's AGM has been moved from the April meeting to the May meeting because it clashed with attendance at the FTM Fair at Alexandra Palace. The May meeting in turn has been altered by one week to avoid the Bank Holiday weekend.
Please note that in August we are repeating our visit to HALS of 2018 for members to come and enjoy the new facilities and receive expert advice.
Please note also we have rearranged some speakers and their topics.
We are sorry for any inconvenience these changes may have caused.
