Our meetings are held at The Cuckoo Bush Inn in Gotham in a warm and cosy room where excellent lunches are available from 12pm -2pm. At our first meeting at The Cuckoo Bush in February 2015 about fifteen members enjoyed a convivial lunch prior to the talk and since then we have held two more excellent meetings in October and November.

The Cuckoo Bush has changed hands since we last met and the new landlady is Marcia. The January meeting will take place as planned. Please let me know if you wish to join us for lunch which will be at 12 noon. Alternatively if you prefer to book lunch independently please ring Marcia on 01159 830 306. All lunch bookings should be made by the Wednesday before each meeting please. The talk will start at 2.30pm as usual. The bar will be open and tea and coffee will also be available at a reasonable price. We shall be holding a raffle as usual.

A problem has arisen in that The Cuckoo Bush Inn is closed for refurbishment throughout February 2016. Marcia is also landlady of Three Crowns Inn in Wymeswold which is not far from Gotham. Our meeting on February 20th will now be held at The Three Crowns Pub, Wymeswold where Marcia has kindly offered us the use of the restaurant and function room. Contact details are given further down the page. The pub is similar to The Cuckoo Bush Inn and the food is good and reasonably priced.

RAFFLE   My special thanks go to all who have donated much needed prizes at previous meetings.

FINALLY   Thanks once again to all who attend our meetings and help to make them so enjoyable. Special thanks also to members who have given talks to the group and who have travelled long distances to do so. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
