Most meetings are held on the same day each month (except August and Christmas/New year). So for example the French Conversation Group meets on the FIRST MONDAY of the month and the General Meeting is held on the THIRD WEDNESDAY of the month. Some groups meet on the same day every other week or at less frequent intervals.

Please contact the Group Leader to join a Group and get more details before going to a meeting.
