Need help connecting to our Zoom Meetings?

Whilst we are under the current Covid restrictions and unable to have in person meetings, you will have noticed that we are using zoom for speaker meetings and for the informal book chats. Although you can join these meetings by landline phone, it feels really interactive if you use a camera enabled phone, tablet or laptop.  We have prepared a couple of videos on YouTube that shows how easy it is to initially set up your device and also to join a meeting and urge our members to take a look and have a go, and we look forward to seeing you sometime, even if it is only virtual

The videos on YouTube have detailed explanations and can be seen here :
