Activities

The 2021/22 season is a significant term in our existence – it’s our 5oth anniversary! As we exit from the Covid-19 pandemic we’re taking a cautious approach to our meetings. Below is our planned programme which may be subject to change if further restrictions are applied. Our default position is that Talks will be held in The Meeting Place in Poyntzpass, but we would revert to a Zoom type presentation should the need arise. In either case, we hope to video Talk and make it available on our YouTube channel. All Talks take place on the first Thursday of each month.

We will be doing our utmost to protect attendees at our meetings in the Meeting Place. This will mean contact details recorded on entry, socially distanced seating and so on an so forth.

Finally, if you have any ideas for a Talk on a local subject matter, then please contact any Committee member or email us history@poyntzpass.co.uk

Thank you.
