Whilst Covid-19 restrictions persist, our monthly socials continue to operate via Zoom. Trips and outings planned for 2020 were postponed until 2021 and are being kept under review with regard to Covid-19 guidelines. Our annual lunch for 2021 will be arranged as soon as guidelines permit. Lots to look forward to!

Venue and Time: Our venue for monthly social mornings is normally Eccles Town Hall, 116 Church Street, Eccles, M30 0LH 10am-12noon on the third Friday of each month. Currently and until further notice, these meetings are being held via Zoom.
Our social mornings are extremely popular and allow members to have a discussion together with a cup of tea or coffee and to listen to a variety of guest speakers, to air your views and for the committee and convenors to pass relevant information to members.
