East Grinstead

Monthly Open Meetings

A resounding success!

Whilst pleased to have such large gatherings, we are concerned that our Open Meetings have outgrown Chequer Mead and we need to relocate for people's comfort and safety. Hiring the actual theatre is not financially viable, so with regret Chequer Mead have agreed they cannot accommodate such a large group. We're not leaving Chequer Mead entirely as the Committee hold their monthly meetings there as do at least one of our Interest groups.

Hub Meetings
To date, we have held Monthly Open Meetings and Members Only Meridian meetings. Whilst these have, over time, fulfilled their purpose, on review, the committee have decided to amalgamate them and have them all (with the obvious exception of the AGM) open to the public and call them Hub Meetings. The idea of a Hub is for it to be a ‘one stop shop’ where members can gather with one another, prospective members can be welcomed and the committee keep in touch with the membership. At the same time, it’ll be an opportunity for group leaders to ‘sell their wares’. We’ll still have a speaker but we’ll have a more open platform from which to operate.

Any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Dates for your Diary
Wed Jul 6th Pub Lunch The Old Dunnings Mill - self book
Whilst we don’t have formal meetings in July & August, we’re aware that members might still like to meet. We are therefore encouraging members to self-book into The Old Dunnings Mill on Wednesday 6 July for lunch – you decide when and with whom you’d like to meet. The pub have been advised of our suggestion, but we have not made a formal booking. Whilst they have plenty of availability at present, they are likely to get busy as the summer approaches, so you may wish to book sooner rather than later
Wed Aug 3rd This event is now FULL
Short Mat Bowls - Jubilee Community Centre, Charlwoods Road 2PM - 4PM
We have arranged a Short Mat Bowls taster at the Jubilee Community Centre (JCC), Charlwoods Road, from 2 – 4pm. There will be people on hand to give guidance, and JCC have generously offered to provide a cream tea, all for a very modest fee of approx. £3 per head. We will need to know numbers in advance. Please contact Julia Harris events@eastgrinsteadu3a.co.uk
Wed Sep 7th Wednesday 7th September - 2.00 – 4.30pm at the Meridian Hall, East Court, East Grinstead, our OPEN DAY.
Plans are afoot for a warm and welcoming Open Day. Details to follow, but you are encouraged to invite friends, neighbours, colleagues who might be interested in joining, whilst you yourselves will be able to renew your membership on the day if you have not already done so.
