General Meetings

General Meetings are held at 2:00pm on the first Wednesday of most months at the Winmarleigh Rooms, Winmarleigh House, Winmarleigh Street, WA1 1NB. All members are welcome. There is usually a talk by an invited speaker, followed by a chance to socialise with other members and to talk to group leaders.

See below for details of the general meetings and any social events.

These are followed by events for groups whose meetings don't fit a standard pattern or have very varying topics, such as external visits or outside speakers, and are in alphabetical order of group. You normally need to be a member of a group to attend a group event. For normal group meetings, see the Groups page.
