Monthly Meetings, Outings & Trips
Monthly meetings usually take place on the third Thursday of each month at 2 pm. However, AGMs are normally morning meetings.
Venue: Main Hall, St Michael’s Church Hall, junction of Canongate/Walkergate, Alnwick.
These meetings give members the opportunity to meet one another and find out what is going on, and there is usually a guest speaker. Over the summer, meetings may be replaced by events/outings.
