Meetings Programme 2022

Because of the covid situation, the Stratford Society is continuing the suspension of its programme of physical meetings until such time as the Committee thinks it safe to meet physically. Instead the monthly meetings will be held online via Zoom, in which the speaker will give a presentation of approximately 30 minutes, followed by an interactive session for questions and discussion.

17 January       Getting cars off the road - Stephen Norrie (Stratford Climate Action)

21 February    Accessible Stratford - Elizabeth Dixon (Disability Adviser)

21 March         Delivering our Climate Change Plan - David Barber (Warwick District Council)
