Monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday in the month at The Bradford Club. We provide refreshments from 10.00 am and this is followed by a talk from 10.30 - 12.00. It is a good opportunity to meet up with other members and have time for conversation before and after the meeting. There is an entrance fee of £1.50 (£2.00 for non members making a visit before joining). Coffee/tea is available for £1.
The speakers cover a wide range of topics and are both informative and entertaining. (Please click on the link on the right to see full programme for 2019)
Some members stay behind after the talk for a light lunch at the club.
