The first meeting will be held in the Founders Bar at the George Hotel in Huddersfield at 7.30pm on Saturday 3rd April.The George is in the centre of Huddersfield.It is across the road from the Huddersfield Railway Station and only 300m from the Bus Station.There islimited free hotel car parking on the railway side of the hotel, and a larger pay car park associated with the station.
If you havent yet had an invitation, drop me an email and I will send you maps showing how to get there.
The address of the hotel is:-
