Meetings are currently being held on Zoom

Members will be sent a link with a pass code and anyone else in Winchelsea interested in joining the meeting should get in touch with Hilary Roome by email by Tuesday 12th May.

If familiar with Zoom, people must join the meeting (i.e. be in their seats) by 2.15pm. Any Zoom virgins should practice using Zoom before the day, either with a friend or family member. They should become familiar with controlling video, audio, volume settings. Better, too, that they then join the meeting at 2pm just to check with Hilary that all is in order. Once set up they can go and do something else for a few minutes.

Winchelsea Second Wednesday Society meets at Winchelsea New Hall at 2.30pm

Talks are free to members. Subscriptions £10 a year. Tea for members £1 per meeting.  Talk and tea for non-members £4
