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

Face-to-face monthly meetings from March 2020 onwards have been cancelled or postponed until the current recommendations for meeting indoors have been relaxed. We will be using Zoom to continue the meetings programme where possible and hope to see you all again before too long. Members will receive the link to the meeting via email, or you can contact the Membership secretary to ask for the link.

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.
