News and Updates


Change to published programme

The following are changes or additions to our published programme. Please take note. On Friday November 23rd. Woodfield street will be closed so we will not have access to the Church Crypt. Our meeting on November 23rd will be held at Morriston Golf Club.

On Friday November 30th our published programme shows "No Meeting". This is because we thought this would be the date that Woodfield Street would be closed. However, since we can now have access to St. David's Church for November 30th we have decided to hold a meeting on that evening. We have arranged an evening with Peter Fry and Tony Platt, when they will share some of their photography with us.

On Friday December 7th we do not have access to St. David's, so our meeting that evening will be held in The Sacred Heart Centre on the corner of Pentrepoeth School Road and Soar Terrace near Morriston Cross.

Please ensure you make a note of all these changes to avoid any confusion.
