The Society holds monthly meetings at various venues throughout north-east Wales. Meetings are usually held on the second Saturday afternoon of the month, but there are no meetings in January and August.
There is no charge for admission, and the meetings are open to Society members and non-members. Light refreshments are usually provided after meetings, which gives members and visitors an excellent opportunity to chat with fellow researchers.

Please check the website for any changes to the programme, e.g. cancellation due to the weather.
