E-mail address list

We are setting up an e-mail address list so that we can make immediate contact with members. 

We've put this together from addresses we already have but we're sure that some of these are wrong and others are missing. 

If you received a message from us about the date of the lecture in December (confirming 10th December) then you are already on this list.  

If you prefer to be removed, or if you didn't receive this message and wish your e-mail address to be added, please contact us by email giving your name and address, so that we can identify you on our database of members.
