However we are still having to cope with considerable Covid-related disruption.

23 Stonegate remains closed for anything other than essential maintenance and the collection of wine from the cellars.

Our talks are all still taking place but completely on-line now, rather than the hybrid arrangement that we were managing with a socially distanced live audience as well as the wider Zoomed one.

We have had to make some changes to the schedule either due to personal Covid involvement or in futile attempts to rearrange meetings to a time when we might have been on a more lenient tier.

Members social events are still happening with dinners, quizzes and wine tasting happening remotely – who’d have thought it ?

We will keep this new website regularly updated for any changes to meetings and booking arrangements for the rooms so please watch this space for any updates.
