Ealing

Meetings

Meetings are held weekly, on Thursday mornings in Ealing Green Church (almost opposite Ealing Film Studios).

You should aim to arrive by 10.00am.
Meetings begin with announcements and in-house business. This is followed by the speaker's presentation during which there is usually a break of approx. 15mins. The proceedings finish at 11.45-12.00.

THURSDAY MORNING TALKS - NEW ORGANISER

Yvonne Hughes has provided a wonderful range of speakers for 2017 & 2018 but must now relinquish the role of organiser of the Thursday morning talks.
The committee is very glad to report that Marie Todman has agreed to take up this highly important task, with some assistance from George Martin. If you have any ideas for future talks and speakers, please contact Marie or John Moore, Chairman
