Group Leaders - Elaine Wallwork

The meetings take place on the second Monday of each month in St James Parish Centre, Church Road, Haydock, WA11 0NJ. This is a large venue offering all the facilities we need and it has its own car park.  It is also easy to get to for anyone travelling by bus.

I am hoping that many of our group members will volunteer to do a talk on their area of particular interest.  If you feel you could help in any way – maybe do a talk, help with IT, produce documents or offer information about any topic you think the group would be interested in, then please contact me for a chat.
