We have presentations and discussions, make occasional visits and promote external open days and lectures in the region. This Spring 2018 term our topics range from the humble light bulb to Earth Observation as well as members' own interests. We are pleased to welcome John Farrow as our external speaker for a talk on the Wiltshire & Berkshire Canal Trust.
