The Society always has a lively and varied programme of interesting talks and visits which are selected to appeal to a wide local audience.
Talks usually take place in the Cerne Abbas Village Hall which has easy wheelchair access to all areas. They begin at 7:30pm unless notified. However, if we are unable to hold a meeting due to the current Covid situation, we will attempt to arrange online talks via Zoom, in their place at the same time. The first Zoom talk of this type took place on 28 January 2021 and was attended by about 80 members.
Notification of these changes is made in good time, via email direct to you, incorporating a Zoom link if you have provided us with your address.
Please note that any re-scheduling of a programme may have to happen at short at short notice
