Upwey & Broadwey – Past Lives — Sue Virgin

Please note that, for this meeting, we are trialing a change of start time, moving it from 14.00 hrs to 15.00 hrs. For this meeting, it would be helpful if attendees could reserve seats in advance to give an idea of numbers wishing to attend. Please contact John Yallop in the usual way at [email protected].

Please note a change to our meeting on 20th August due to our speaker having to postpone.

Paul Radford has kindly stepped in to present his latest talk on ‘The Liberation of Guernsey’ that was originally scheduled for the 16th of July.

The start time is still 3 pm and we are asking those wishing to attend to reserve a seat in advance by contacting me.

We have also been advised that one metre plus social distancing is still in place at the centre and that people are requested to wear face coverings whilst moving around in the building.
