Letter from LALG Chair 13 June 2020

Dear LALG Members

In this message are dates for some upcoming events.   Our monthly online talks have been a great success and we are now adding some more to the calendar.  We are also trialling a Beetle Drive via Zoom!  Although the lockdown is easing we realise that not everyone will be comfortable venturing out so we thought we'd try something else to keep ourselves occupied.
