Dates for your diary below is in several sections: Meetings, Outings, Study Days, Social Events and Holidays. You can re-arrange these events into date order with the button above 'Dates for your Diary'.

Meetings
Our monthly meetings, at which we usually have a guest speaker, are held in the Town Hall, Market Place, Evesham on the first Wednesday of each month (except January) from 2pm to 4pm You are cordially invited to stay on after the talk to enjoy free coffee/tea and biscuits and have a chat with other members. There is no admission charge for members, although we may ask you to show your membership card at the door. A suggestions/comments box is available at these meetings, affording you the opportunity to let the Committee know your views and thoughts. Owing to the pandemic, no meetings are planned until lockdown restrictions are lifted but we are planning to replace them with live zoom speakers. If any groups want to make use of our Zoom-Pro account please get in touch to make a Zoom Request and book a time slot.
