Usually, the June and July meetings are away from our usual base and can take the form of a walk such as on the Cycle Track to look at the fauna or a visit to a local place of interest - eg Calder Abbey. The annual subscription for family membership is £7.50 and for a single person, £5. You are welcome to join us for a one-off meeting. Admission of £1 for members and £2 for non members is collected at each of our meetings to help cover the cost of the usual light refreshments and towards the cost of hiring the hall. We meet at Lamplugh Village Hall , Cumbria CA14 4SF. Visit the hall's website for directions.
