Most meetings are held on the same day each month (except August and Christmas/New year). So for example the Garden Lovers Group meets on the SECOND TUESDAY of the month in the morning and the General Meeting is held on the THIRD WEDNESDAY of the month in the afternoon. 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.
