Winter Programme 2020-21: A Programme of Virtual Autumn and Winter Meetings.

The Shropshire Archaeological and Historical Society is running a series of monthly online talks delivered via Zoom, starting in September.  This is a series of talks held jointly with the Friends of Shropshire Archives. Those members of these two organisations who have supplied their email addresses will be sent a link each month which will enable them to register in advance for the next talk and then to join the meeting via Zoom at the scheduled time and date.  Registration will only require a person’s name, email address and post code, and is mainly to help keep out malicious intruders and to give some idea of numbers attending. The attendee will also need to have the free Zoom application installed on their device.

The first talk was held on the 15th of September.
