NOTE SOME TALKS ARE ON MONDAYS

We have held meetings with a varied set of talks in Liskeard for many years. These are now becoming unsustainable, with very few members attending. In January this year, for example, the speaker, our Programme Secretary and Zoom operator all travelled from the Newquay and Truro areas — and only one TS Member was present! If one or more Members who live locally to Liskeard would volunteer to take on the responsibility for running these
meetngs, then the Society can look to continue them after this Summer. Otherwise, we plan to move to ‘Zoom-only’ for the Liskeard sessions:  meetings at King Edward Mine would not be affected. Please contact the Chairman, Brian Jones, if you would like to discuss helping with the Liskeard meetings.
