Since November 1975
Meetings are usually held on the second Saturday of the month. There are garden meetings during the summer and autumn. During the colder months there is a programme of interesting indoor talks and lectures, some of which are virtual meetings via Zoom that are held in conjunction with neighbouring Groups. These are also advertised on the AGS website and by email to Group members.
