Upcoming meetings

We meet every second Friday at Blackshaw Head Chapel from 18:00 until about 21:30.

Community events may mean that the Chapel is not available on the scheduled day. We will then either cancel a meeting or move it on to the odd week.

20/3/20: The Chapel is currently closed for community events so we cannot hold meetings until the virus situation is under control.  We will update as the situation develops
