Events

Our monthly meetings provide a friendly, informal opportunity for members and non-members to socialise and to talk to committee members and group leaders. These monthly meetings are held at the Emmanuel Church Hall, Cambridge Road, Southport - at 1:45pm for a 2:00pm start on the second Tuesday of every month.

There is usually a speaker at these meetings and we hope to introduce a diverse and interesting topic each month. If you have any ideas of who you would like to speak, or topics you would like to know more about, please let any committe member know.

Any changes to groups, notices will also be recorded here
