The branch has found a new venue for its technical meetings – The Lancaster Hall hotel, 35 Craven Terrace London, W2 3EL. This well-appointed conference/meeting centre will be ideal, and the hotel is only a 300 metre walk from Lancaster Gate underground station (Central Line) or 5 minutes from Paddington station (main line, Bakerloo, Hammersmith & City, Circle and District lines).

Generally the meetings will be held on Thursdays, but for the first meeting in 2020, this will be on Wednesday 8th January, starting at 18.00. Full details will be posted on the Institute website.

The London Branch 31st Christmas Luncheon will be held on the 5th December at the Royal Overseas League, Park Place, St James’s St, London SW1A 1LR, starting at 11.30. For further details, and information on how to get there, see the announcement on the Institute website, and to reserve a place, contact, Steve Barke on sjbarke55@gmail.com
