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 plan to continue to hold our meetings like this with an anticpated return to in-person meetings from April 2022.

If you are not already a SIGMA member and would like to become one to enable you to join our online meetings please contact Mick at:
