Meeting Venue

We will be moving our monthly meetings to a new location on 15 December 2017,  The new venue will be Crawford Hall, Salford Road, Bidford on Avon, B50 4EZ. We hope very much that the new venue will improve members experience in terms of visibility and that the "cinema sound" system will help everyone. Importantly there is adequate parking for members with cars and the hall can accomodate more than the 78 people we can fit into our present venue. We hope that you approve this decision which we will review with members after about 4 months.

Recent Meeting
