Centrally Organised Virtual Events (COVE)

We have organised one online talk on Zoom per month, usually on the third Tuesday, at 7.30pm. Talks are free to LALG members and are in addition to the Members’ Open Morning Meeting talks.  See what is on offer for the rest of the year.

Time for take-off with LALG

Many LALG groups are taking on a new lease of life after the months of lockdown, but a few groups and activities need a boost to recover from their ‘break in service’.

Commonwealth War Graves

Tue, 30/11/2021 - 7:15pm

Paul White will help us discover the unique architecture and conservation work of the CWGC.
The CWGC honours and cares for the men and women of the Commonwealth who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten. Funded by six Member Governments, their work began more than a century ago building cemeteries at 23,000 locations all over the world.

Parliament

Tue, 16/11/2021 - 7:30pm

A talk by a representative of the UK Parliament covering, how UK Parliament works, who is your representative, how are they chosen and their role, what is the House of Lords, and how are laws made.

We are also researching a talk by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission on architecture and conservation – watch this space. And if you have any other ideas for a speaker, please email chair@lalg.co.uk.
