Chorley

Events

We organise a variety of trips to theatres, museums etc.

Our General Meetings take place on the fourth Monday of the month at St George's Church Hall, Chorley, starting at 1.30pm. Usually we have an outside speaker, though sometimes the meeting is taken by our own members. The format is usually news, speaker and then informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
