New times

To allow the venue to clean the room before we start and after we have finished we have had to alter our times for the short term. New times are:

  • Arrive between 6.50pm and 7.15pm, please DO NOT arrive earlier.
  • The meeting will start at 7.15pm and the speaker will present until 8.15pm.
  • You will then have a chance, 5 or 10 minutes, to ask questions before the meeting closes.


To keep everyone as safe as we can, both our members, visitors and other users of the venue we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • Once in the room please sit down.
  • Wear a mask/protection when entering the building and please keep it on throughout the meeting. 
  • Chairs will be spaced out – unless living in the same household we ask that you maintain that distance between seating.
  • Please use the hand sanitiser that is provided.
  • We will have windows open to ensure airflow through the room. You may want to wear a coat.
  • Please ensure you use the lift if needed.

The times, guidelines and situation are under constant review and may change.

Access to the Sixth Form block at Kennet School

There is parking at the front of the school. You can then walk through the school (see the black line on the map below) to get to the meeting room – go through the main doors, take a left and walk down the corridor, come out of the first double doors on your right and you will see the Sixth form block over to your left.

Please do use the lift if needed.

Note walking around to the rear via the road (blue dotted line) may have obstacles, please if you walk go via the school reception.
