Our last talk, 'Showing a DVD on the History of Welford' on 26 November 2021, was a hybrid event. It was held live in the Memorial Hall, the first face-to-face meeting since January 2020, but there was also an option to join using Zoom. Both options were well attended by our members. We plan to offer this service for our January and March 2022 talks.
