Monthly meetings

The meetings are held typically on the second Monday of each month between 10:00 and 12:00, although there may be an occasional change of date if there is a clash with another function. These changes do not happen at short notice.

Members should just turn up at the Winston Churchill Hall, Bury Street, Ruislip before 10am on the second Monday in the month, enter the foyer and you won't be able to miss us.
