Meetings are on the first Thursday of each month from 1pm – 3pm at Midsteeple, Dumfries.

Enter by the blue box office door then take the lift or stairs to the 1st floor meeting room.

Meetings are free to attend, refreshments are available, and we can arrange for someone to meet you to go into the building. You can stay for as much or as little as you’d like.

Meetings can be a simple catch up with other members, swapping stories, or can include guest speakers – see the calendar of events for details.

Likewise, see the calendar for any ‘pop-up’ meetings at other locations.
