Monthly meetings at which all members, potential members and visitors are welcome. These are held on the second Wednesday of each month, except August, from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm (doors open 2 pm) in The Lyndhurst Community Centre.
The monthly meeting starts with a short business session and includes an entertaining and informative talk by an invited speaker.
Afterwards there will be time to chat with old and new friends over free refreshments including cake, biscuits, tea and coffee. This is the opportunity to find out more about available interest groups from the notices on the tables at the back. Committee members and Group leaders will be on hand to answer any questions and there will be the opportunity to join if you have not already done so.
The Lyndhurst Community Centre is the top of the main car park in the village centre. The car park is Pay and Display until 6 pm and NFDC Parking Clocks can be used.
The Interest Group meetings are shown on the Interest Groups page. Other activities which are open to all members, such as outings organised by the groups, study days, workshops and similar will be listed below and usually on the notice boards at the back of the hall before and after the main meeting

|Wed Sep 9th||2.30 pm. A.G.M. At LYNDHURST COMMUNITY CENTRE (if Government Regulations permit and if not by Zoom video-conference). After the AGM, which usually takes about 20 minutes, we will have the Speaker, James Taylor. He will talk on "The History of Artist-Drawn Postcards from 1840 to 1950". Artist-Drawn Postcards were the most popular art form from the Edwardian era to the outbreak of World War II. Often comic or cute they entertained, inspired, instructed, motivated, persuaded and lifted up the spirits. Discover the popular themes and styles by the masters of the medium such as Mabel Lucie Attwell, Donald McGill and Fred Spurgin, and the reasons why their popularity waned with the British public.|
