I wrote to you during the summer about the cancellation of our June talk and AGM and reported that the Institute of English Studies had indicated that Senate House would not be open for meetings during the autumn term but that it may be possible for us to hold our Christmas talk and party there in December. This, obviously, is not going to be possible and I have my doubts that we will be able to meet at all in the 2020-21 academic year.
If we are, however, able to have any talks between March and June 2021 we will provide these free of charge to members in recompense for the talks missed in 2019- 20. We will, needless to say, keep you notified of progress about this and put updates here on the website. I sincerely hope that we can get back to a normal programme for the 2021-22 academic year.
Until we are able to meet again do take care.
Lindsay Martin, Chair
