As from January 2020, on the last MONDAY morning of each month (with some exceptions) a meeting 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.

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 are of course cancelled for now until further notice. The Annual General Meeting is now scheduled to take place on 24 August 2020. We are not sure yet if this will be 'virtual',using 'Zoom' or it could be closed or open to members, but we will be advertising details later. Even if we hold it via 'Zoom' please attend if you can so that the meeting is quorate. Thank you

NB.There will not be a meeting in December 2020

Thu Oct 1st Because of the Covid-19 virus, the Third Age Trust had designated 1st October 2020 as the alternative date for our drop in event (was 3 June 2020). However, as Covid has extended, it has now been decided by the Third Age Trust that it would be prudent to leave the celebrations until 2021. So, the date has now been put back until 2 June 2021. Please keep this date free in your diaries. As soon as the current situation allows we will be busy organising this again and requesting volunteers. Thank you
