The  groups operate on an "Open Forum" basis with each attendee bringing a topic for discussion.  So we are able to cover a number of subjects in our two hour session.  The meetings are very informal, with everyone able to speak and give their opinion on each subject.

If you are intending to attend for the first time, please notify Theresa Smith in  advance (see below).




There is a £1.00 attendance charge to cover refreshments and any special occasions in the future.
