Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are based around a talk given by a guest speaker, followed by questions and answers. These meetings are also an opportunity for committee members and group coordinators to pass on notices and announcements.

They are held in the Castle Street Centre, on 3rd Wednesday in the Month starting at 10.30 am, with coffee available from 9.45 am, and last about one and a half hours.

See Events for other meetings which are open to all members.
