Usual Group meeting days and times.These may occasionally vary. See the Group pages for latest information.

Note that the Bridge, French and Scrabble groups each usually meet fortnightly and therefore not on a particular week of the month.
The Walking Group usually includes lunch afterwards, and the Industrial Heritage Group visits last most of the day
