The Canal Group generally meets on the 3rd Monday of each month from 10.00 until about 12.00. However, because a lot of canal-based events take place on summer weekends, we occasionally attend one of these events in lieu of a Monday meeting.
The current Group leader is Brenda Stevenson and she is the person to contact if you have any questions or suggestions about the programme. Please use the email button on the right.
Thank you to all Members for keeping in touch during Lockdown.
