We hold coffee mornings five times a year, and lunches four times. Usually they all fall on a Thursday.

Coffee mornings: For these you just have to turn up but, if you do, please remember to print your name on the attendance slips before leaving so that we can ensure we claim a full grant for everyone who attends a function.

Both coffee mornings and lunches are now held at the same place, the Park Inn, Silver Street, Northampton NN1 2TA, in the town centre.

Lunches: Circulars are sent to members with the regular issues of our own newsletter, The Link, to invite them to attend lunches. We now meet at the Park Inn, Silver Street, Northampton NN1 2TA, in the town centre.

Note - Lunches have to be both booked and paid for 6 weeks before the event. Be aware that there are NO refunds if you cannot attend.

If you know of a speaker that members might be interested in hearing please get in touch via the Contact Us form.

As soon as we finalise the entertainment for the remaining dates we will publish the details both here, and of course in The Link, but later.

Theatre outings

We run regular trips, usually to the Milton Keynes Theatre, where we can get good deals. But, as they go on sale at short notice and cannot be bought via this site, there is little point in promoting specific trips here.

So we suggest you read The Link, the club’s newsletter for specifics. In there you will also have my contact details. I am not online. Nor do I have email but, if you use the Contact Us form on this site and select the Theatre option it will get to me – eventually.

Coach Trips

We often run day outings by coach and have been known to arrange short holiday breaks too. As they cannot be booked via this site nor by email we don’t publicise them here.

Instead please see the club’s quarterly newsletter, The Link. In there are also my contact details.
