Monday Morning Men’s Meeting
We meet for talks and discussion, at Emmanuel Church, Forest Road, in the winter, and at St Mary in Charnwood, Nanpantan, in the summer.
Meetings usually begin with coffee at 10.30am but please note there are some later and earlier start times and alternative arrangements. We usually finish meetings at noon. Special events during the year include lunches in March and October, a picnic (in June this year), and outside visits in January and August. Ladies are invited to some of our meetings but all men are welcome to all our meetings.
A contribution of £1 is suggested for every meeting at Emmanuel and St Mary’s, to include tea/coffee, biscuits, speakers’ expenses and occasional fees.
