Disasters

1st Monday

Conservative Club

Leader: Martin Houghton
First Monday from 2-00 to 4-00 pm.

We traditionally meet at the Conservative Club, 30 Long Street, Devizes SN10 1NW.

We have now re-started live meetings in the Seminar Room at the Conservative Club which have been well attended by group members pleased to be in a live environment after all the Zoom-based sessions we have relied upon over the Covid restricted period.

Our meetings very much support the spirit of U3A by sharing information and experience and covering a wide variety of Natural and Man-Made disasters.

These events are reviewed and analysed and cover many sectors, including aviation, maritime, petrochemical, rail, medical, mining and environmental.  They stimulate lively discussion on the causes and lessons learned from the events.

We are presently reviewing some previous presentations and updating them from current reporting, and also looking at current actual and potential developments that could precede a future disaster.

The group is open to new members.
