Meetings and Outings


Indoor Meetings
2018/19

 

Each year the Society stages eight indoor meetings between October - May. They are usually held on the first Friday of the month, dependant on the timings of the New Year and Easter holidays, and start at 7.30pm. These are currently held at two alternating venues, but during the course of the winter of 2018/19 there will be a move to a single more central venue.

The October and December 2018 meetings will be held as normal at The Rothley Centre, 12 Mountsorrel Lane, Rothley, Leicester LE7 7PR (click here for map).

The November 2018 meeting and all meetings from 1st January 2019 will be held at The Hall of St. Anne’s, Letchworth Road, Leicester LE3 6FN (click here for map).

Additional meetings may also be held at the Rutland Water Education Centre during the year, which will be publicised via this website and The Grebe newsletter.

The meetings feature illustrated talks by experienced ornithologists, artists, conservationists or photographers. They are an ideal way to meet and socialise with other members and the committee, whilst enjoying the excellent photos, anecdotes and varied subject matter of the speakers. All meetings are free to members. For more information, please contact Andy Howes andyhowesuk@gmail.com
