Programme 2017/18



Meetings are held on the second and fourth Mondays of the month (except one meeting this year is a TUESDAY - 13th November 2018) at the Royal British Legion Club, Staunton Lane, Whitchurch, Bristol, BS14 OQF. The Club opens at 1930 and the aim is to start proceedings by 1950. 

Whitchurch is about 4 miles south of the centre of Bristol on the A37 towards Midsomer Norton.  Turn left at the traffic lights at the 'Toby Carvery' into Staunton Lane: the Royal British Legion Club is a short distance up the hill on the left hand side.  There is ample parking but if able bodied please park towards the far end of the car park.
