Another virtual meeting this month, our venue is now open, but not the
section we use. Of course the new rule of 6 restrictions scupper things
anyway, and I'm far from sure how many people would want to meet in
person anyway. I suspect we will continue as virtual until the New Year,
but will keep an eye on things to see how they change.
Apologies for the short notice, it is almost traditional now! I have

If anyone wants to join by phone I can email a code when the meeting
starts (I don't think it gets created until then with Jitsi), but I have

meet and I investigated.
See and/or hear you there - so to speak!
