Always look in the event calendar for the dates on the right hand side (if using a PC or Laptop) or at the bottom (if using a 'phone or tablet). Normally we meet in the Lecture Hall 2 in the Academy on the lower ground floor of the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, but this sometimes changes. Entrance is via the lift in the main Atrium or via the outside door to the car parks. There are numerous Bus services that stop at the Hospital - Swindon's Bus Company services 1, 1A and 12; Stage Coach 80 and 81 (to/from Marlborough) and Connect Minibus 47 (to/from Lambourn). If travelling by Car, there is lots of parking and the cost is currently £1 for 2 hours after 6pm. For 'Sat Nav' users, the Post Code is SN3 6BB. Much more information on directions and parking can be found at https://www.gwh.nhs.uk/contact-us/maps-and-directions/.

We are in decsion mode about the December meeting - speaker of social - but we will let you all know in good time.
