Virtual Lunchtime Social

Join us for our monthly lunchtime virtual catch-up in our Teams channel. All are welcome!

As the last few Thursday catch-ups haven't been well attended, we're switching up the days to see what works best. Here are the days for the next few months (all 12.30-13.30):

  • Monday 29 April - Pride planning meeting

  • Wednesday 29 May

  • Monday 24 June

If you have any feedback on what day works best, let us know!

If you are keen to organise or host an event, please get in touch.
