Centrally Organised Virtual Events (COVE)

Centrally Organised Virtual Events are running on Zoom almost every week.

They give LALG members a distraction from the gloom of social distancing and cold weather while so many of our other activities are on hold.

These virtual events are are being subsidised from central LALG funds and so they are free to members.

The views and opinions expressed by speakers or other third parties at LALG events (in person and online) are those of the speaker or third-party and not necessarily those of LALG. 

With regard to any information presented by a speaker or third-party at LALG events (in person and online), LALG is not responsible for its accuracy or completeness. 

Booking is online.

If you haven’t used this website before, you will need to register first and then come back here. Registering is easy and there is a short online video to help you.

If you want to join LALG, it only takes a few minutes and costs just £10 per year for your whole household.

Free Tutorial Any LALG member who would like to start using Zoom is welcome to a free one-to-one tutorial. This is over the phone and usually lasts from 30 to 90 minutes. It is tailored to your needs and your device. No matter how comfortable you usually are with technology, we guarantee to get you started on Zoom.
