Events

There is currently uncertainty regarding when and how we will be able to hold normal indoor and outdoor meetings due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we have recommenced some of our activities from September 2020 onwards. Initially this is via on-line lectures using the 'Zoom' platform. Full details about how to 'attend' meetings are contained in the details for each event or in the programme details in the news section of this website. Alternatively please email Lydia Taylor at membership@macclesfieldrspb.org.uk.
