Evening Meetings

Indoor meetings are held monthly (on the second Tuesday) from September to April at the Village Hall in Culmington. This delightful venue is easily accessible from all directions; you will find it on the B4365, about 4.5 miles to the east of Craven Arms (off the B4368) and a similar distance north of Ludlow (off the A49). The hall is on the main road but hidden behind a long hedge. There is plenty of parking space.
