Monthly Meetings take place,(during term time only), on the first Thursday of every month from 10.00 to 12.00. They are held in the large back room at Shaftesbury Methodist Church, Shaftesbury Street Newport, NP20 5JH. The business part of the meeting usually takes about 45 minutes following which there is a coffee break. This is then followed at about 11.00 with a speaker. Details of the speakers for the coming months can be found below.
It is necessary, on rare occasions, to alter the day of meetings because of such things like bad weather, elections, funerals at the church etc. Whilst this will be advertised through Convenors and on notice boards you can check the dates below as well.
