2021 Isle of Wight

The 2020 meeting was unavoidably postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but was re-arranged by Suzie Venn & Phil Thomas for 20 to 22 October 2021 at the original scheduled venue (The George Hotel, Yarmouth, IoW).

On the first evening, members dined casually and cooked their own food on hot stone platters in the local restaurant "On The Rocks". The second and third mornings were devoted to presentations (see tables below) and, on the second afternoon, members enjoyed a hike across Tennyson Down (below) in glorious sunshine with spectacular views of The Needles, Alum Bay, Freshwater Bay & the English mainland. The final night's dinner was held in the restaurant of The George Hotel.
