Meetings are held in the Methodist Church Hall, Rose Hill, Oxford OX4 4HS
Evening meetings, usually on the 3rd Monday of the month, are at 7.00 for 7.30 pm.
Morning meetings (October to March) are usually on the first Monday of the month from 10.00 am to 12 noon.
Most meetings will also include “Bring and Buy”, open before the main Meeting and during the refreshment interval.
I am including a tabulated jpeg form of our programme, which (if you haven’t got “touch screen”) you can enlarge by using the menu from the three dots on the top right of your screen, or save (and then print off) using the “right click”, but for those of us with poorer eyesight, the typed version follows!
