Meetings 2021-2022

Due to Covid, we have changed the venue for our 2021-2022 season of evening meetings to Ardleigh Village Hall, Station Road, Ardleigh, CO7 7RS and the day of the meeting to the 2nd THURSDAY of the month (was 2nd Wednesday).


Our meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month from October through to May (but not in January).    

The meetings are held at Ardleigh Village Hall, Ardleigh, CO7 7RS  and start at 7:45pm.  New members and visitors are always welcome.      Entry is free to members and there is a small charge of £1.50 for visitors.   Tea/Coffee and a biscuit is available after the talk, there is also a raffle and a plant/produce stall.   

Membership for 2019-2020 has been carried forward to 2020-2021 and now to 2021-2022, so members that joined for the 2019-2020 season will not have to pay any membership subscription for the 2021-2022 season.
