We are hoping to hold all of our indoor meetings in Palmer 109 in the 2021-22 season and simultaneously online via Zoom for members who cannot attend the meetings for whatever reason. However, we have to be prepared to change arrangements at short notice as the situation change, so please check the individual meeting announcements below.

Where meetings are to be provided via Zoom, the link to each meeting will be sent out a few days in advance to all members who have provided their email address. If you have not received an email by two days before the meeting, please contact the Secretary - secretary@berksoc.org.uk We are also recording our meetings and making them available online to members where possible.

We welcome visitors to our meetings. If you are not a member but would like to attend any of our meetings, please contact the Secretary via secretary@berksoc.org.uk
