Please note our new venue for evening meetings, starting with our May 1st 2019 meeting:

    Evening meetings, except for garden visits, are now at The Dorothy Fox Education Centre, Sheffield Botanical Gardens, Sheffield S11 8RB. This post code is for the Thompson Road entrance, off Ecclesall Road and anyone coming to our evening meetings who wants to park in the gardens should approach from Thompson Road. 

    Parking: We can park on both sides of the road inside the Botanical Gardens, leading up to the Education Centre. The entrance is from Thompson Road. Please park carefully and don't leave big gaps between cars so we can park as many as possible inside the gardens. 

    Security: There will be someone onsite who will lock the gates when the gardens close and will open them again at the end of our meeting. 

    For more information on talks and other evening meetings please contact our secretary, Judy Coulson.
