Light lunches are available from 12:00 for those attending. 

The building with its distinctive clock tower is in the High Street, see How To Find Us, and has a comfortable meeting area.  Nearest car park, a pay & display, is only 50m away in Landguard Road.

Here are a couple of pictures of one of our meetings.
