Meeting Venue


From January 2018, our meetings will be held in the Lancaster Room at the Avro Heritage Museum at Woodford with a start time of 1.30pm (please plan NOT to arrive before 1pm). We feel that this will be a far more appropriate venue and will be of mutual benefit to ourselves and the Museum. We hope this new arrangement will enable most of our members and guests to continue to support the Branch, and will aslo give it a chance to prosper going forward. Pleased to say that we have now completed our Programme of Guest Speakers for 2018. See the Meetings section for full details


Thanks must also go to Lloyd Robinson for helping to bring about this and for his efforts in arranging most of the 2018 meetings (details on the Meetings section on this website)
