Left: Rob Vernon (Talks Organiser) beside the conference lectern made especially for the event by Andy Harris. Centre: Norbury Village Hall date stone. Right: Socially distanced delegates listening to one of the talks in the Village Hall (Boo Vernon & Kelvin Lake).
Rob Vernon coordinated the lecture programme and managed to arrange an interesting series of talks, including overseas contributions from Spain, Portugal and Lithuania all crammed into 45 minute sessions!
During the conference the talks were recorded. In the table below the green highlights beside the title of a talk indicate those that are available for conference delegates, speakers and helpers to view. The others should be available soon.
To watch a particular talk just click or select its title. You will need a password to access them which the Club secretary will send to all those involved with the conference. You will get the best experience if you watch the talk at 'Full Screen' (the little 4-arrowed square button near the bottom right of the video control bar).
Note: If you haven't received a password for the talks then please send an email to: Andy Wood (Club Secretary) scmc.secretary followed by @ then shropshirecmc.org.uk (Sorry about this but we're trying to reduce the SPAM !)
