Meetings 2020

Our meetings are held in New Mills Town Hall (SK22 4AT), on Friday evenings (usually), starting at 7:45pm.
The hall is open from 7.00 pm. Visitors are welcome (£1.50). Free tea/coffee/biscuits after the talk.
N.B. The meetings in April and May are on the first Friday of the month, not our usual second Friday, (Easter and late Spring Bank Holidays).
