AGM and MEETINGS 2020

We held our much delayed AGM on Tuesday 4 August at which point Roy Sexton, our Chair of twenty years, stepped down although he will remain on the Committee. We are delighted to announce that Guy Harewood has taken over as Chair and Chris Cathrine as Vice Chair. You can find out more about both Guy and Chris in this year's CHAIRMAN'S NEWSLETTER. We are also delighted to announce that we have another new addition to the Committee, namely Stuart Bence whom some of you may remember from his days at Stirling University when he headed the Nature Society there.

TALKS

We are pleased to confirm that we will hold all of our winter talks for 2020/21 via Zoom. If you are a member of SWT and have given permission for SWT Head Office to contact you by e-mail, you will be sent details before each talk.
