Indoor Meetings

We generally meet twice a month (from late Sept.- May) on the first Thursday at 2pm or the fourth Wednesday at 7.30pm. The days may occasionally change so please check our programme for the dates of each meeting.

After nearly 2 years without face to face meetings, we are cautiously aiming to hold some ‘live’ meetings again, depending on any restrictions in force at the time. Therefore from December 2021, and in 2022, afternoon meetings will be face to face again. Evening meetings through the winter months will continue to be held online using Zoom, with the hope of returning live for April and May 2022. The 2022-23 season will be reviewed later in the year.

PLEASE NOTE the change in venue for the afternoon meeting on February 3rd. This will be held at Onslow village Hall. All other afternoon meetings remain at Shalford.

When face-to-face meetings can resume, group members pay £1.00 at the door, and non-members, always welcome, pay £3.00. There is no charge for on-line meetings, and the zoom link will be sent out the day before the meeting.

Non-members are welcome to on-line meetings as guests, but we would ask them to consider making a small donation to the RSPB. They should email info@rspbguildford.org.uk to request a link and include their address in the mail. The link will be sent the day before the meeting.
