    Let's meet digitally! The Covid-19 situation has forced us to stay apart but we can still keep in contact.

    We have launched a new digital meeting platform for our members via Zoom.

    There are two available sessions:

    One on Wednesday evenings from 19.30-20.30 and the other on Friday mornings from 10.30-11:30.

    Both sessions are open every week at the above times. Members can choose to join for as long as they wish; either to stay for a short time to have a quick coffee or a glass of wine and a chat or stay for the whole time and enjoy catching up with everyone. 

    These are informal, self managed sessions. No need to book in advance. Just drop in as you wish.

    Please see Friday's Centrepoint Weekly Briefing email for details about how to join the drop in sessions.

    Looking forward to seeing you again! Don't forget to bring a drink!
