    This would indeed have been open to the public, but unfortunately it has had to be postponed due to the disruption to airline services caused by the volcanic ash – our speaker is unable to travel for the lecture. It will be rearranged for some time in the Autumn. Further details on that will follow in good time. Yvonne
