Indoor Meetings
All indoor meetings will be held in St Andrews Church Hall, 11 London Road, Wickford, Essex, SS12 0AN.

NOTE - entrance to the hall is at the rear and NOT via the main church doors.

There is adequate parking in front and behind the Church. 

Teas and Coffees are available during the interval. 

Doors Open     - 7.45pm 
Meetings Start - 8.00pm prompt.

Admission - Members £2.00

Outdoor Meetings 
Unless otherwise specified, outings will depart from the Wickford Central Council Car Park (next to the Co-Op) at the times shown over. 
Please note that times will vary according to the location of the meeting. There are sometimes spare places in cars travelling to the different locations, so anyone needing transport can normally get a lift. In case of a change of venue or timings, it is advisable to contact Martin or Marie Singleton on the phone numbers detailed for confirmation of all outdoor meetings. 

We aim to arrive back in Wickford at around 1pm but this is of course, approximate and very much dependant on the wildlife we see on the day. 

If you wish to travel direct to any location, map references and directions will be provided.
