Programme of events 2020/21

Due to the ongoing Covid situation the committee have decided that all meetings until December 2020 will be held as Zoom meetings. If you wish to take part in these Zoom meetings please contact us by email:

Members of the Sheffield University Womens club stood outside of Hardwick hall
Christmas Outing to Hardwick Hall


While the committee hope that at some point in 2021 the Club will be able to meet in person decisions on the format of meetings in 2021  will have to be made nearer the time and members will be informed via the January Newsletter, email or post.

The committee have also decided that the Annual General Meeting which is normally held in October will be postponed until the Club can meet in person. It will therefore be replaced by a lecture via Zoom.
