Since April 2020 our meetings have been held online via Zoom.

This has enabled the Club to keep up our monthly meetings and for our members and affiliated clubs/societies to participate in each others meetings.

We are now returning to in-person meetings at Lhanbryde.

If you are not already a SIGMA member and would like to become one please contact Mick at:

Current membership costs £24 per year, payable each January.
