We usually meet on the second Wednesday of each month, at 7:00pm, at Bowburn Community Centre. Map

Our monthly meetings are open to all. Please be aware that because of the rising cost of speakers and room hire, we have had to introduce a charge of £2 for members and £4 for visitors for meetings that feature a visiting speaker.

Everyone’s welcome but please don’t attend if you have recently tested positive for COVID or have symptoms of respiratory illness.
