Please use the bluebird symbol to email Beryl Fussey, who is the group contact for 2023-2024. We have room for 1 new member in 2024, due to one person moving away, and will be delighted to welcome you. We meet on the second Thursday of the month at Meopham Library. Currently we are investigating meeting at 2.30pm so as to avoid the worst of the school's traffic
