NOTICE

Following the latest Government guidelines on Coronavirus, it has been decided that an online version of the AGM should now take place as it now seems unlikely that we will be able to hold a physical meeting in the immediate future.

This will follow the normal AGM process, in as far as an online version is able.

Voting will be open to Members from Wednesday 21st October 2020 until 23:59 on Monday 30th November 2020. Further details will be emailed to Members over the coming weeks. If you would like to vote but do not have a Members Website Log-On please contact the membership secretary, and one will be created for you. Results will be made available on the Society Website shortly after the closing date for voting.

The Members Meeting  on 16th December will be a Zoom Meeting. If you did not received an invitation link for the November talk, please email membership@nottsfhs.org to be added to the December list.

The talk will be: “Once upon a pantomime” by Trevor Lee.

The research room in the National Justice Museum will also be closed until further notice.
