Recently we ventured out for a face-to-face gathering – in the open air. You will find a report on this below. We hope […]

SUES FORUM 19: 05/2021

In this edition we hold out some prospects for future face-to-face meetings, while at the same time maintaining the online links that have kept us alive as an organisation in the last year.

Welcome to edition number 18 of SUES FORUM. As the signs of Spring are here amongst us, perhaps we can assume a feeling of optimism; that the restrictions, which have so much limited our lives and activities, have an end in sight. We are daring to hope that we may be able to arrange face-to-face […]

We hope that despite the restrictions, members were able to enjoy some sort of festivity over Christmas, and we trust that 2021 is going to bring a return to normality. As soon as it becomes possible, SUES will look to restore face-to-face meetings. In the meantime, however, we have been able to provide some online […]

SUES FORUM 14: 12/2020

Despite everything have a great Christmas! What a year it has been! Who could have imagined back in January that an outbreak of a virus infection in China would close down much of the world? The challenge to SUES was daunting. Just when we thought we had got the Society on its feet again with […]

SUES FORUM 13: 11/2020

We have now experienced our first presentation in the new format designed to accommodate current restrictions. All members received a pack of material on Samuel Pepys by email or post, and two separate groups gathered together for a further input by Roger Mitchell which included discussion. The technology was managed by Alan Potter and everything […]
