Monthly Meetings

Meetings are normally held at Ramsbottom Civic Hall on the third Wednesday of each month starting at 7.30 pm, but with the Civic Hall being unavailable, we will temporarily move to Christ ChurchNeighbourhood Centre on a Thursday evening starting on the 13th January. Note that the dates are every 4 weeks, and are the 2nd Thursday of each month apart from April, when it is the first Thursday.

Christ Church has the postal code BL0 0PX and is on Great Eaves Road. There is a car park at the back of the church.

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.
