During 'normal' times and hopefully 'post covid', the last MONDAY morning of each month (with some exceptions) a meeting for all members, is held in the Riverside Suite at Venue 360 in Gypsy Lane, Luton. Directions to Venue 360 from Parkway station can be found here. It begins at 9:45 which gives members an opportunity to meet their friends and Committee members over a cup of tea/coffee, browse the Bring & Buy stall or buy a book or jigsaw. Sometimes there is also the opportunity to hear about and reserve tickets for outings. There is usually an entrance charge of £3.00 for the monthly meetings. Please remember to bring your membership card with you to sign in
At most meetings a Speaker gives an illustrated talk for 45 to 60 minutes. This starts at 10:30 am. After questions we give out any notices about groups or forthcoming trips.
NB. Monthly Meetings at Venue 360 are of course cancelled for now until further notice. However, we are holding monthly meetings on Zoom until further notice and details can be found on this page.
If you wish to attend the Zoom meetings you will need to advise the secretary
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Winnie will forward joining details to you. Please note, you MUST however, be a fully paid up member to attend.
