The weird, the wild & the wonderful part 4

Next Thursday, 15th July Andrew Negus will present the 4th part of his series of talks based on his adventures and experiences while travelling around the world in 1991.

Andrew has been a regular presenter at our monthly meetings and his talks have always gone down well, so it's worth making time for.

We cannot get into the hall until 2pm to begin setting up as we have to leave time for cleaning under the COVID guidelines after the previous users.

People with bookings to attend in person have been asked to arrive between 2.15 and 2.30. They will be escorted to the hall, seated at tables and signed in to COVID track and trace.

If you do not have a place please do not go to the Community Centre. Instead you can attend the presentation via Zoom. The speaker is due to start at 2.45.

More details about the presentation including Zoom access information here.

Bournemouth air show

We are taking bookings for a trip to the Bournemouth Air Festival on 3rd September. £30 pays for the coach to Bournemouth and a three course meal in the evening.

You can find out more about the day, and book your place here.

Public telephone network switch off

The chances are you've not heard that all landline telephones are due to be switched off by 2025. It's not been given much publicity yet. I provide more information and set out what I've learned so far in this article.

There's not much you can do right now, but I'm letting you know so you can avoid investing heavily in telephone equipment or services unless absolutely necessary.
