Monthly Meetings during the Coronavirus Pandemic

The RPS Western Region will not be holding live meetings until at least November 2021, when we plan to resume gathering at HQ for our monthly event. This will also be broadcast live on Zoom.

However, we are continuing our highly successful monthly programme of online meetings using Zoom. 

To view the programme as it stands at the moment please click on the 'Guide to Western Region Events' link in the box to the left above. 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.

See the 'Past Events' link above to view the online meetings held throughout 2020 and to date this year. 

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, usually the second one in the month. 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.
