GENERAL MEETINGS

Please note that General Meetings are usually held monthly in Morpeth Rugby Club, Mitford Road, Morpeth (NE61 1RJ) starting at 2pm, normally on the last Tuesday in the month. There is limited free car parking available next to the Rugby Club, so car share if you can. Other car parking is available 200 yards further west from the Rugby Club entrance at the Scotch Ghyll car park which is situated straight on from the Low Ford bridge spanning the Wansbeck river. The meeting normally (not AGM) consists of an invited speaker followed by some business and then tea and biscuits and time to chat.
