Usually an account of the evening meetings is compiled by the Meetings and Visits Secretary and copies of these are sent out to members of the Group.  It is now intended that in future, where the speakers agree to this, that brief accounts of the talks should sometimes be available to users of this website.  Below is a list of the talks for which accounts are now available.  If you would like to download a copy of any of these please press the green button to the right of the item.
