Branch Diary 2018

Branch Meetings

Branch Meetings are held each month and for 2018 are to take place on a Thursday in the second half of the month. Branch Meetings are usually fairly informal (sometimes comprising just a social with no actual meeting). On occasions we may have a guest speaker, or we may go on to visit other pubs in the area.

The following Branch Meetings have so far been arranged for 2018. Meetings start at 8pm unless otherwise indicated, and all are open for anyone to attend.

Committee Meetings

Committee Meetings are also held each month and for 2018 are to take place on a Monday in the first half of the month.
