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.
Free refreshments are provided at the end of each meeting and all who attend are warmly welcomed to stay for tea/coffee/biscuits and a chat. PLEASE NOTE that, as we are still at the mercy of the Covid-19 pandemic, you will be asked to wear a mask when you enter and leave the hall and to use normal discretion about maintaining social distancing as far as you can. It will also be at your discretion whether you continue to wear a mask during the presentation. We shall also be unable to offer the refreshments at our meetings while the crisis lasts.
