Below is the Club's 2020/21 Programme. With the exception of one or two, all meetings on Wednesday evenings at 19:30 starting 2nd September. The programme assumes that we will start meeting face to face in January, but whether we have to switch to on-line for a further period or can go ahead face to face will be decided at the end of 2020 when the picture is clearer.
The Club encourages and welcomes new members and visitors at any time during the season.
