Wellingborough & District



CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC - Update 15/12/2021


Some Interest Groups are now finding that are able to meet again, but larger assemblies such as the monthly members' meetings are still not possible and will continue by Zoom for now. This is being reviewed by the committee every month.

Drop-In sessions at Wellingborough Library are still suspended, but it is hoped that Garden Visits will be able to go ahead again next year.

Check back on this website for updates on the situation.

Monthly meetings and some Group meetings take place over Zoom - please contact your group leader for details for your groups.


This is your events page. If you need advice on social or travel events, then check out the information on the subject on the Documents page - link at the top of this page. If your group has an event, or it has had to change an event venue or time, then please contact the General Groups Co-ordinator, or your Web Co-ordinator to make the amendment.

MONTHLY MEETINGS - These will take place over Zoom until further notice. An invitation to register will be sent out to all members for whom we have an email address each month, and a link to join the meeting will then be sent to all members who have registered.
