The committee has explored the use of Zoom as a substitute for face to face meetings but have decided not to pursue its use unless a speaker specifies a wish to use it.


The situation at St James means it is necessary to cancel face to face branch meetings until Summer 2021. We are investigating a different larger room at St James for when we return possibly as it will be less confined.

Dorset Branch

Dorset Branch of the World Ship Society have launched a series of events via Zoom in an attempt to overcome the limitations on meetings due to Coronavirus restrictions.

All events are promoted via www.shipsdorset.org and the first event was planned for September 2020. Anyone wishing to join one of these Zoom events just needs to drop a email to Dorset Branch via steve@telecommerce.co.uk or via their website to receive an invitation link.
