Dear Members and Friends,

Whilst we are all looking forward to a long, warm summer this email is to remind you that KLSAS will be back in October to warm your winter evenings.

Our meetings will take place on Tuesday evenings in our new home, the Ballroom of the Duke’s Head Hotel on the Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn. Free parking is available in the hotel’s carpark on a first come, first served basis. The doors will open at 7pm and a full bar as well as tea and coffee will be available throughout the evening. The meetings will start at 7.30pm.

We are not forgetting that some members will not be able to attend in person whether for reasons of distance, illness or mobility: all the meetings will be shown simultaneously via Zoom. However they will not be recorded so you do have to reserve the dates in your diary in order to watch live.

And here is the programme:

Tuesday 11th October: AGM, immediately followed by
