20 January 2020:   The Links page now contains a link to the 'Aerosociety Podcast' -  the National Aerospace Library's collection of historic sound recordings - "A real Who's Who of aviation personalities and historical subjects".  (And Click hereā–¼ for some useful information about the content of this 'SoundCloud' Website.)

5 June 2020:   Like the last three meetings of the current season, our 2019/20 Annual General Meeting, scheduled for 5 May 2020, had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus epidemic.  Annual Reports from the Secretary and Treasurer which would have been presented at that meeting are now available to read and download here and here.  As no objections to those reports were received (in response to the chairman's email of April 21) it has been taken that those reports and the re-election of committee members has been approved by the Loughborough branch membership.

09 July 2020:   Although by this time of year the Programme page would normally have been  updated prior to the start of new season in the autumn, that step has been put on hold as we still do not know what, if any, lecture facilities might be available to us from October onwards.  Possible changes to the now provisional lecture programme, accessible below, will be announced if and when they have been arranged.

17 September 2020:   The planned 2020/21 season programme which may be seen here   has  been severely affected by the coronavirus epidemic.  Click here to read a letter from the branch secretary which explains that although the first four lectures have had to be cancelled we are exploring the possibility of presenting at least some of the material online. Further information will be provided in due course.
