Meetings in 2013 and 2014

You are welcome to attend meetings of the Society, which are normally held at 8 p.m. on the third Monday of the month, at the Methodist Church Room facing the Village Green.   We welcome members at a fee of only £10 per person for a year, and we have a reduced rate for young people in education.  A visitor's fee of £3 is made for a single talk.
