General Meetings

These are held on the first Monday of each month (except August )at 2 p.m. at Cave Castle Hotel. If the first Monday is a Bank Holiday then the meeting will be held the following week. Regularly, over 100 members attend these meetings. A charge of £1 is made towards the cost of the room.


These are arranged from time to time, and the cost obviously varies.
