Our meetings are at 7.30 pm on the second Monday of each month (except August) at St.Nicolas Church Rooms, Bury Street, Guildford, GU2 4AW.

Activities include:

  • Monthly Meetings Usually with a speaker on a topical subject or campaign theme, followed by a group business meeting. Please see above for details of times and location.
