The Group meets on a Friday evening at 7.30 pm. Meetings are held once a fortnight (normally the 2nd and 4th Fridays) in the period from September to April; the last meeting of the programme being the AGM which is held at the end of April annually.The meetings are held in Snape Village Institute.
Some meetings are based on a discussion with a group member leading on a specific subject, others are where we invite in a Guest Speaker.
Meetings between the AGM and Annual Exhibition (August Bank Holiday Monday) are for members to consider and prepare material for the Exhibition.
Admission is £2.50 for non members, who are welcome at all speaker and general discussion evenings. Light refreshments are served after the meeting.
