Monthly meetings

We have had some fascinating speakers over the years, both from our own membership and from outside, and continue to plan an interesting programme.

Have you got an interesting story to tell? Or do you know of a speaker that the members would enjoy hearing? If you do, our Talks Secretary you love to hear from you.

Present situation of monthly meetings under COVID-19 restrictions

We are delighted to announce the cautious restart of face-to-face meetings from December 2022 when the situation allows. Your safety is our priority and we will be following local and national guidelines.

In general:

Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of covid or have had a positive covid test result within the past 10 days.

The Committee strongly encourages all members attending a meeting to carry out a lateral flow test beforehand unless you are already routinely testing twice a week.

Please check specific precautions in place as outlined in the monthly email or contact the Membership Secretary.

Under normal circumstances

Open meetings are usually held on the last Friday of most months. All of the meetings take place in the Main Hall, County Buildings, Wigtown.
Members, free; visitors, £3.

Refreshments are served from 10:00am, with the talk starting at 10:30am.
