On Sunday 28th March 2021 we have arranged a virtual meeting at 1:30 for 2pm using the Zoom online video-conferencing software. This should allow anyone with a computer, laptop, tablet or smart-phone to participate. An Internet connection will be required (which you presumably have if you are reading this!) and preferably also a microphone and video-camera (often combined and sometimes called a webcam) if you wish to say something. These are built into smartphones, most tablets and many laptops, and can be plugged into desktop computers.
Jon Evans will show the second part of his talk on “Plants seen at AGS shows” for our Zoom meeting at 2pm. This will be a chance for all those members who can’t normally travel to our meetings in person to join in. Jon gave us the first part of his talk at our last physical meeting on 6 October 2019 in Winchester. We will email details of the link to join the talk nearer the time.
Our Zoom meeting is at 14:00, on the day the UK moves to British Summer Time (BST, daylight saving), one hour ahead of GMT/UTC. You might miss it if you are a member in the UK or most other European countries and forget to change your watch or clocks, or if you are a member in another country whose time does not change at the same time as ours (e.g. USA, Canada, Australia, etc.) You can see the current time in the UK here: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/uk/london
