Events

The Society organises a full programme of events throughout the year and Leighway magazine comes out regularly through the year.

 As a new innovation this year we are increasing our meetings to 7 (shown in red below) with guest speakers on a variety of subjects. These are held at Wesley Methodist Church in Elm Road at 7:30 pm and there is a small charge for entry - £2 members, £3 non-members.

We also have an annual quiz, outings and other events throughout the year.
