With the ongoing uncertainty on when face-to-face indoor meetings will be able to resume, due to Covid-19, SOC branches will continue with virtual meetings, via Zoom, until April 2022. This is in order to ensure the safety of our members and speakers, and to allow us to plan an online programme of talks that we can be confident of delivering, regardless of where things might stand in relation to the pandemic.

An invitation with a link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out to the branch's members a few days before the event via email. To receive this notice, please ensure that you are on the appropriate mailing list held by HQ. If you are unsure, you can check your mailing list preferences by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Fife branch talks are normally held on Wednesdays, but while Covid-19 restrictions remain, the branch will hold virtual meetings in conjunction with Tayside branch.   Meetings will alternate between Wednesdays and Thursdays until indoor sessions resume.   The meetings will start at 7.00pm for participants to log in, a meet and greet and What’s About Chat, and the talks will start at 7.30pm.


The following days from 7.00pm:
