Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month from September – May each year. Venue: St. James’s Church Centre, Pottergate, Alnwick Time: 7.30p.m
All our meetings are free to members, with visitors asked to pay £2. We do not operate a booking system for attendance – just turn up!
The venue, where we meet in the upstairs room, provides a pleasant and warm environment with good acoustics and it has proved to be a most pleasant venue for members and speakers alike. Nearby on-street parking and access is easy with evening parking possible in the Morrisons carpark, only about 200 metres from the venue.
From this coming September we shall be returning to our traditional provision of free refreshments at the end of each meeting and all who attend are warmly welcomed to stay for tea/coffee/biscuits and a chat.
Details of indoor meetings for 2022/23 are listed below and will appear in appropriate issues of our newsletters.
