The start of the Forum’s 37th season under Chairman Roger Bancroft is just a few weeks away with the first meeting scheduled for Tuesday October 1st.
Another excellent programme of Speakers has been put together by John Taylor Programme Secretary which will entertain, educate and interest us across a wide spectrum of subjects and brighten up the coming autumnal and winter Tuesdays for seven months.
Annual membership fees of £3 and weekly payments of £2 to include refreshments remain unchanged and represent great value for what’s on offer!
Proceedings begin as usual at 10a.m. with tea/coffee being served and the weekly speaker starting at 10.30a.m.
