We have a regular monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month  10.00 am to 12.00 noon(doors open at 9.30 am) at Roman Park Hall, Berryfields HP18 0YT where you can find out what’s going on in the various groups, meet up with friends, as well as hear informative and entertaining talks by a variety of speakers. Periodically we have a coffee morning at the Watermead Inn where we can get together in a more informal way and chat over cups of tea or coffee. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly group of people who like to come together to learn something new whilst making new friends and learning new skills. So if this sounds like you – do get in touch.
