TALKS WITH COFFEE AND CAKE

A regular programme of meetings takes place on the last Thursday of most months. This is your opportunity to hear an interesting talk with the added incentive of a cup of coffee and a slice of delicious home-made cake. The talks are open to all (you don’t need to be a member) and cost just £3 per person. Unless otherwise stated, meetings are  held at St Joseph’s Hall in Cromer Road. Coffee is served from 10.15, with the talk beginning at about 10.30 and lasting about 45 to 60 minutes.
