Your First Meeting

Welcome – Check our Meeting Programme to see which is the next meeting that you will be available to attend. For a first visit you may enjoy a ‘skill share’ meeting. On skill share days we will be available to help you with equipment, give advice and generally make you feel welcome. Of course you are welcome to come to our formal meetings and enjoy our guest speakers. The cost for a visitor is £4.50 for the day.

We meet at the Yorkshire Museum of Farming, Murton Park, York YO19 5UF. We meet on the third Saturday of the month. Meetings start at 10.30am but members start to arrive from about 10am. We finish at 3pm.

Tea and coffee are available for a 50p contribution. It’s a good idea to bring your own lunch the first time until you find out what food the café is serving and if it is open.
