In consideration of the safety of our members and the practicalities of venue number limitations in the light of covid-19 the TVAES Executive Committee have decided not to attempt to hold any face-to-face lectures for the remainder of the calendar year.  We regret having to take this decision however the situation will be kept under review and if possible we will resume meetings in Woodley from late March 2021.  Meanwhile TVAES Online will continue to delivered scheduled and additional lectures and classes online through zoom.  A full programme of lectures and classes started in September 2020 is currently being finalized and will be posted and emailed in the next few weeks.
