Since the first Forum Zoom talk was held on November 25 last year, another three talks have been presented. First we heard a talk about the sailing ship HMS Terror and its voyages to the Polar regions. Next, members and guests were treated to a talk about the unicorn in art and heraldry, and most recently, we heard a talk about the rise and fall of English seaside resorts between 1750 and present time.
Audience numbers for these talks has been increasing steadily as more members become confident about using Zoom and so Forum has a further programme of talks planned. So far four have been booked. These will be held at at fortnightly intervals and will take us up to mid-March. The subjects to be covered include: the Fenland floods of 1947, dragonflies and damselflies and unusual weather phenomena.
A continuation of virtual talks beyond 17 March will depend on the progress of the pandemic and when Forum will be allowed to revert to physical meetings.
