Thursday Meetings

From April onwards we will be holding all our Thursday meetings at The Cloisters, Barrington Road, Letchworth. Refreshments will still be laid on but we will no longer have a raffle at the regular meetings. We will also be increasing the meeting entry fee to £3 for members and £4 for non-members. This will help cover the ever-increasing cost of speakers.
