Unless otherwise stated, our regular meetings are at 7.30pm on the third Wednesday of each month, in the Methodist Church, Buckland Brewer. We are currently running hybrid meetings, so it is possible to join in in person, or online. Members will be sent the Zoom link a few days before each meeting. Some speakers will be presenting live in the room, others will be presenting digitally but can be watched from the Methodist Church.
Normal charges for meetings with speakers are £3 for non-members, with under 18s free. There will also be additional meetings, workshops and outings so please watch carefully for updates. Items in italics are relevant events run by other organisations.
Visitors are welcome. Please contact us using the form on the home page for further details if you wish to attend virtually.
