Important Announcement

As the result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and the current Social Restrictions in place, it is still not possible to resume the LFHS weekly meetings at Lasswade High School.

This has resulted in the decision of the Committee to run the Society 'in the background' via Zoom Committee Meetings to ensure the important matters relating to Society are dealt with on a monthly basis

As a result of obtaining a Zoom Licence, the Society is now able to resume our Monthly 'Speaker Evenings, commencing on 9th June 2021.

Log-in details for members are now in the 'Members Area' for this first Zoom Meeting and will be updated for subsequent Speaker Evenings each month.

Thank you for everyone’s ongoing support and we wish you well during these uncertain times.
