DIARY of EVENTS 2008

All our meetings begin at 2pm unless otherwise stated, but you may wish to arrive earlier to browse the paperweights that will be on sale. At some venues, many of those attending meet for an informal lunch first. We welcome anyone with an interest in paperweights to our meetings - if you wish to attend as a non-member (ie a guest) please contact the Membership Secretary for further information.
