Each month, on the second Thursday of the month at 2:00pm, we have a talk, open to all members, featuring an invited speaker, and covering a diverse range of topics as you can see from the programme below. Members know that they can look forward to an entertaining, as well as interesting, afternoon and there is also the chance to socialise afterwards over a cup of tea or coffee.
These talks take place in the Broadway Baptist Church, Broadway, Chesham, which is wheelchair-accessible and equipped with a hearing loop.
The June talk each year is preceded by our Annual General Meeting, where the Committee reports to the members and Committee Members are elected or re-elected.
