Unfortunately the December meeting could not take place !

We have a membership in the region of 40, with an average attendance of 20. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month in St. Patrick’s Church hall. This venue has plenty of on-site parking so do come along and join us.

On a sad note, our founder member Paul Chapman passed away in January. He was a fine speaker and will be sadly missed.

Also realistically, it is unlikely that there will be any further meeting until September, as we normally take a break in the summer months.

Mike Lynch and Ann Pearcey
