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 dates of each meeting.

Until we are confident we can meet face to face in a relaxed manner, our indoor meetings for the remainder of 2021 will be held on-line using Zoom. This will be reviewed later in the year. There is no charge and the zoom link will be sent out the day before the meeting.

Non-members are welcome as guests, but we would ask them to consider making a small donation to the RSPB. They should email to request a link and include their address in the mail. The link will be sent the morning before the meeting.

When face to face meetings can resume, group members pay £1.00 at the door, and non-members, always welcome, pay £3.00 at the door.
