Wed 24 May 2017


organiser: Terry Cole

normal venue: London Road Station, Shaftesbury Place, Brighton,


Meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month month (unless otherwise stated) at 19:30 for 19:50.

Regarding disabled access, the normal entrance to the venue is via a flight of steps at the front of the station. However there is access from the platform which is wheelchair friendly and although we normally keep this door locked for security we do have a key so this could be opened if required. Wheelchair access is therefore available but it would be helpful if we knew if a disabled person was coming to look out for them and make entry arrangements. Toilet facilities are at the same level but they are rather cramped for space: they could be used in desperation!
