Unless otherwise stated, our regular meetings are at 7.30pm on the third Wednesday of each month, in the Church Schoolroom, Buckland Brewer; please see the map at the bottom of the page. Normal charges for meetings with speakers are £3 for those who have not paid in advance, 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.
For the time being, all our meetings are virtual. Visitors are welcome. Please contact us using the form on the home page for further details. Please call back to this page for the latest updates. We are aware that the social element of our meetings is important and although we are very sociable online, it is not the same. We hope to resume face-to-face meetings as soon as we feel that it is safe for us to do so. We plan to continue with the occasional virtual meeting even when face-to-face meetings recommence.
