From Room to Zoom

A video presentation of how the Lamplighters have operated during a full year of lockdown.


During the past year it has been impossible to meet at the golf club but we hve kept up our normal meeting schedule by means of Zoom . Whilst we all miss the normal human contact it has allowed us to listen to some very interesting speakers from far and wide so its far from being all doom and gloom.

We have made a promotional video to show how we still managed to serve the community as best we could , and to collect donations towards our charitable activities.
