This meeting will mark the start of BAS returning to face to face speaker meetings! We will be in the Old Theatre for this meeting, but please note the following:

  • Entrance will be via the Crash Doors / Fire Exit
  • Masks are NOT required by the school, it is a personal choice for all BAS members
  • Hand Sanitiser will be available for those that wish to use it
  • The room is part of the school and used by other people. BAS members should be aware of this, and understand that the room is not cleaned prior to BAS using it

As this is the first time back, we will NOT be offering tea and coffee – as we work through logistics and the general approach and guidance, we will continue to review this.


We are delighted to welcome back long-standing member John Thatcher – as many of you will know, John retired a few years ago and relocated to Shropshire, and we are very grateful that he has made time for us in trip back to Bedfordshire.

John will be bringing us up to date with all things James Webb – will it make the launch date? Are those amazing panels going to open?? Hopefully John will fill us in!
