NB Attendance at our monthly meetings has been very low recently so we would like to know what we can do to attract more of our members to attend. Are the subjects too boring? is it difficult to get to our venues (above)? or maybe the time of the meetings is inconvenient? Please contact Peter Dare or Dave Clegg with any ideas for future meetings.
Outings in red contact Pat Pollard 01305 264471 to book
