We hold public meetings every month except July and August. These are free to members but there is a small charge of £2 per head for non-members.

Our meetings take place at the North Middlesex Golf Club, The Manor House, Friern Barnet Lane, London N20 0NL starting at 7.45pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month.

There is ample parking alongside the building and buses on routes 234 and 383 stop outside. Please note that the Golf Club requires smart casual dress (definitely no denim or trainers) and mobile phones may be used in the car park but not within the Club House.

You are welcome to come along and meet our members: we are a friendly group and we try and make our meetings as entertaining as possible. Tea coffee, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks can be purchased at the Club Bar.
