A link will be sent to you by email the day before the meeting.

If you wish to download the app, you may find it to be convenient in future. You do not however have to download the app to get into a Zoom meeting.
Click on the link and it will open in your browser.

When you enter, your screen will ask you to “connect via internet audio”, click on this. You will now be able to hear what is being said.

Please make sure your microphone is off because too many people with their microphones on causes sound distortion.

You can connect via a smartphone.

The meeting will start 15 minutes early at 6:45 pm so that you can see and say hello to other members in the virtual room.

If, however you are using a laptop, desktop computer or tablet, please do not have your cell phone on or near your computer
as this causes “feedback” (annoying high pitched noise).


Note: Only one person can speak at a time.
Put your microphone on to speak and turn it off again immediately after.
The early start time will give everyone time to join the meeting and resolve any connection issues our members might have.
