This was the Societies first attempt at a full Zoom meeting and we were very pleased to welcome Ben Devine who was an enormous help in getting the ball rolling as we experienced a few problems prior to starting the meeting proper.

However once we got going Ben produced an excellent talk with illustrations and photo’s.

He walked us through various topics such as:-

  • How Fungi function

  • Uses of Fungi such as in medicine

  • Identification and collection

  • Noteworthy groups and interesting species

  • The pitfalls of eating Fungi

Then to finish the evening and to see how much we had been listening he had a quiz lined up.

This was a very entertaining evening and we are most grateful to Ben for his contribution.
