Events

On the last Wednesday 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. After questions we give out any notices about groups or forthcoming trips.
