Stroud & District


Monthly meetings are held on the FIRST THURSDAY of each month at 2.30pm, usually in St Laurence Church Hall, The Shambles, Stroud. Except for the AGM, there is a charge of £2 to cover the speaker's fee and the hall booking cost.

We do hold some events away from here. These are our monthly IT Drop-in workshop, our Annual Tea Party and our Christmas Lunch.

Some Group meetings/outings are also listed.
