Monthly Meetings during the Coronavirus Pandemic

The RPS will not be holding live meetings until at least January 2021.

Because of the current disruption and restrictions the planned live events schedule for 2020 is currently on hold.

We have been running a programme of monthly online meetings with a varied range of subjects and speakers. These have been very successful online meetings and we plan to continue these in the near future, so please check back regularly for news of forthcoming events. See the 'Past Events' link above to view the online meetings to date. 

These have been taking place using Zoom. If you would like to virtually attend an event it is necessary to register beforehand so that you can be provided with a link to the presentation.

Meetings are normally free (unless otherwise stated) and when we return to being able to gather together, are held at RPS House, 337 Paintworks, Amos Vale, Bristol BS4 3AR. Parking is free where available; Trains to Temple Meads Station and local bus services are frequent. Link for more information           

Our meetings  - both live and online - are on Sunday mornings. The doors/Zoom link open at 10:00 and the actual meeting will begin at 10:30. However anyone who may need Technical Advice or specific assistance can between 10:15 and 10:30 consult one or more members the committee.      

Keeping in Touch.
