Monthly Meetings

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month we hold our monthly meeting at which we have a guest speaker, except for our Annual General Meeting in August and our Christmas meeting in December ( see below)

The meetings are followed by refreshments, tea/coffee and biscuits. It’s an ideal opportunity to socialise, sign up for Groups and chat to friends . Many of the Group coordinators are also present and members thinking about joining a group can take the opportunity to find more about the Group from its’ coordinator in person.

Members are also able to speak to any member of the committee in person as our Committee members attend the meetings whenever possible

The meetings start at 1.45 pm and members are asked to be seated in good time as late arrivals make it difficult for those sitting near the entrance to hear the announcements.

The meetings are held at
Burton Joyce and Bulcote Village Hall

Visitors

Visitors are always welcome at our monthly meetings to meet us in person, and find out more about us and our activities.

We know visiting any new group can be bit daunting bit don’t be concerned . You will be met by one of our friendly welcomers who will guide you around the meeting and they are identifiable by their red “Welcomer” badges.

August Annual General Meeting

We normally hold Annual General Meeting, in August. We do not have a speaker at our August meeting. Instead, after the formal business we sit down and have a cream tea often accompanied by a table quiz or some other entertainment.

December Christmas Meeting

We do not have a guest speaker to celebrate the festive season. However in recent years we have been delighted by performances from the children of Burton Joyce Primary School and our own Ukelele group. And to keep our brains in focus we have scratched our heads over quizzes and dingbats whilst enjoying a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie.
