The 12 months from March 2020 became the year of "lockdown" - when we discovered and learned to use Zoom, held "virtual events" such as the lockdown arts exhibition, and had our 50th anniversary celebrations curtailed - with the exception of the wonderful anniversary banner

In 2020, as recorded elsewhere, we also learned how to run hybrid meetings - on line and in the hall - which we managed a couple of times during the summer months.  

Pictures show (clockwise from above) a typical meeting of our hard working committee; entries in the lockdown "coffee arts" exhibition; the 50th anniversary banner and the hardworking team of ladies who produced it; and the "virus vocabulary" designed and produced by member Margaret Cuthbert, who turned her vocabulary into popular mugs.
