With COVID cases spreading, the society is currently meeting via Zoom each week. Face-to-face meetings are still taking place in the landscape group, who meet in small numbers and have trips planned to autumnal beauty spots.

Soon society members will also be out and about in Royston to collect the first round of pictures to form an archive for Royston Museum.
