Fri 24 Mar 2017


organiser: John Shaw

normal venue: St. Mary's Church Centre, Great Baddow, Chelmsford,


Please note that John Shaw deals with domestic matters.

We hold quarterly meetings with four different organizers each responsible for hosting or presenting just one meeting a year. We may only have quarterly meetings for the present, but that does not prevent us organizing further meetings during the year, so keep an eye on the web site for the latest information and, better still, turn up to enjoy good company and an interesting time.


Forthcoming Events

During the winter months in the event of very severe weather, actual or forecast, a meeting may be cancelled and reinstated at a later date. Please check with the organiser before making a journey in these circumstances.
