Meetings are held at Ramsbottom Civic Hall on the third Wednesday of each month starting at 7.30 pm apart from December’s Social evening which is held on the 2nd Wednesday. We also have a break in July and August, but during those 2 months, we have an outside visit
There is a guest speaker and non-members are very welcome.
There is a charge of £2 for visitors and £1.50 for members, which includes refreshments.
The normal format is the leader welcomes the meeting with any news and outstanding business. There is then a refreshment break, followed by the main speaker. The meeting usually finishes between 9 p.m. and 9.30 pm.
Note that we meet in the Holcombe Room, and there may be dancing in the main room. Entry is through the main room by the stage
