Visitors are welcome at the Club and it is suggested that two or three General Meetings be attended prior to joining. The General Meetings are on the first Monday of the month at 7.30pm for 8pm start. This is to ensure that the Club activities meet with your expectations. Visitors are welcome to come and view workshop activities, but equipment may not be used until you become a member (for insurance reasons). See "Activities" page for Workshop dates and times.
