In these strange and uncertain times we have been looking at ways we can continue to communicate and bring the Marlburian Community together whilst we are all in lockdown. So we would like to introduce Marlburian Mondays, a new series of Zoom talks by OMs to be held at 8pm on Monday evenings.

To take part in Marlburian Mondays you will need to check your emails for instructions and a link to join the talk. Unfortunately we are limited to 300 spaces so it will be ‘first come, first served’ on the night, as people join in.

Finally, if you have ideas for a talk or would like to give one yourself then please contact Fiona Cottrill.
