Visitors are welcome at the meetings, for which a small donation of £2 is suggested.

There will be an allocation of 15 minutes at the beginning of each meeting for "notes and queries" from members. The objective is to allow members to do the following:
  • Give a brief discourse on an item of research that they feel could be of interest to members but which doesn't merit a full talk. The maximum length of each contribution will be 5 minutes.
  • Allow members to pose queries that would help them with their research and where members may be able to contribute.
