Science group

Membership is full. The group meets at 2pm on the third Tuesday of the month.

If you wish to join the science group please use the form below.

The group meets monthly to listen to or discuss topics in science and mathematics.

It is hoped that group members will present talks on various topics, although there is no obligation to do this.

The group meets in members’ homes unless the group is too large and requires a larger room.
