SPEAKER MEETINGS are held monthly on the LAST MONDAY of the month.
These meetings are held at Exning Road Club starting at 2.30pm.
Our speakers at the monthly meetings are carefully chosen to provide interesting and stimulating talks on a wide variety of interests and topics. We welcome any feed back on the speaker or the meeting in general.
After the formal presentation there is always the opportunity to talk to the speaker individually and to chat with other members over a cup of tea or coffee.
