Upcoming and Recent Events
Meetings deferred now to at least August 2020. Please refer to later post.
It is an unfortunate fact that so many events have already or are being cancelled due to the Coronavirus. The HTFS Executive at a meeting today has decided in the interest of all members who attend monthly meetings and lectures that these are to be suspended, certainly for April through to June when the situation will again be reviewed.
We will update this post as and when necessary and to let you know when monthly meetings will resume.
