Syllabus 2020-21

A varied programme of events is planned at SLPS this season.  However, due to the uncertainty of when  Covid-19 restrictions might be lifted, we have arranged for meetings to be online via ZOOM until the end of the year. The programme for the rest of the season January-June 2021 will be published nearer the time.
