All meetings commence at 2pm.


Following the ending of Friday evening lectures at Ashwood Nurseries, I am delighted we are able to continue the Friday lectures. In association with Ashwood Nurseries we have secured bookings for 2021 and onwards at the Community Centre High St, Swindon, Dudley DY3 4NR, which has a large hall very suited to lectures and all the usual facilities including good parking, facilities for refreshments and is close to local amenities including several quality eating premises (Ashwood Nurseries Tea Room?) for those who might want to eat before joining us.


We have arranged to have access to the hall from 1pm with meetings running from 2-4pm with a tea break part way through the lecture. We are open to suggestions for topics and speakers, I have more than 140 lecture titles listed on my website www.thedrurys.com and am happy to receive suggestions as to topics you would like me to cover. I am currently working on several new titles and hope to have at least one of these ready for our recommencement in September 2021


We hope to have at least one guest speaker at each group of lectures, but we will need to calculate numbers and costs, much of which will be determined by the numbers attending the lectures. For this season, the cost for all three lectures will be £12.00 or £4.50 per individual lecture. Many of you who paid in full in spring 2020 are two lectures in credit, and therefore will not need to pay for the September or October meetings.


It seems sensible to give out applications for the November and the three spring meetings at the October meeting in order to save on paper  work and postage cost, however you may pay for just the November meeting and pay again in spring if you wish.


We can then look at numbers and costings of future sessions, but I do hope to keep the costs the same while being able to book quality speakers, however there are plans to increase the cost of hiring the hall and this will need to be taken into account.


Out of the 70 who attended in 2020 more than 50 have already attended the September meeting. If you would like to attend, please email me or telephone me to reserve a place, as we are limited to a maximum of 100 people in this superb venue.
