Monthly Meetings


Please Note that Physical Monthly Meetings and Outings Have Been Suspended Until Further Notice


Monthly meetings are held on the third Friday of the month except August and December. Normally they are held in St James' Hall which is accessible for wheelchair users.

The doors open at 9.30 am to enable people to catch up with friends, check availability of groups and sign up for outings. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served. Each group takes it in turns to provide the tea and coffee - follow the link to see the rota. The minutes of the most recent committee meeting will be available on the notice board, usually situated to the left of the screen, and a talk begins around 10:20am. The speakers are organised by Trevor Rayner, our Speakers Organiser.

During the pandemic we are holding Zoom meetings most months and the Zoom link will be sent to members a few days before the meeting. The Zoom meetings open at 10:00am and the speaker begins at 10:30.
