Nairn

Wednesday meetings

Our Wednesday meetings generally take place at Nairn Community Centre. Meetings are held fortnightly from September to May, and usually involve a guest speaker. The talk lasts about an hour, and we enjoy tea and biscuits and a wee blether afterwards. We also have a library of donated second-hand books - members are welcome to borrow any you like the look of, and either return it when finished or replace it with a different book.

The meeting starts promptly at 2pm, so please arrive a little earlier to get settled. Non-members and guests are welcome at any meeting. There's a small charge towards room hire.
