In Touch Community News

Welcome to the new year with a new programme of entertaining speakers for our meetings. First up will be Eleanor Gilbert with ‘Growing Places’ on 1 February.

Subscriptions will be due and can be paid at this meeting, at the AGM in March, or online at any time. Unfortunately, the speaker that we had booked for March has had to cancel, and Mike is working on a replacement.

April meeting will be John Hewson with ‘Sweet Peas’. Day trips are being arranged by Gill Denny at Windmill Tours and information will be available when dates have been fixed. 

Have a look at the Society’s website: for news.

Meetings are usually held on the first Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in the Community Centre. We have varied, interesting, and entertaining speakers, refreshments, and a bring-and-buy plant stall.

If you are interested, just turn up at one of the meetings or email:
