Enjoy interesting talks, lunches and social events with a convivial group.
We meet each Thursday morning during the winter months from October to the end of
You can see more details about St. Paul’s Church Hall and nearby parking areas on
the “Where We Meet” page.
Our members start to gather from about 9.30am when coffee or tea and biscuits are
served and the meeting starts at 10.15am. After a short introduction by our Chairman
and any business matters, a wide range of speakers then present talks on a variety
of topics. You can see the list of talks for the 2019/20 season on the “Programme”
page. Meetings close at 11.30am.
Our current annual subscription is £7.00 for the full season, £4.00 for the January-April
meetings. In addition, we pay £3.00 for each attended meeting which helps to offset
the cost of refreshments and room hire.
We also enjoy other social events such as visits to interesting and unusual venues
and we have Christmas and end-of- season lunches that are very popular with our members
and their guests.
The Chairman is elected annually and this season our Chairman is Chris McDevitt.
Following the Government’s recent advise on group meetings, and as a safeguard for
our members, our Committee has now decided that we will not be holding meetings until
January 2021 at the earliest and it will then depend on the situation at the time.
From next season onwards the Harrogate Forum will be open to lady-members.
Meanwhile, to give you an idea of the range of speakers we offer, next season’s programme
is on the “Programme” page although (as above), meetings prior to January 2021 will
NOT take place.
