Covid-19 and online vs in-person
Our meetings have been varying between in-person and online because of the pandemic. Please check our Twitter feed on the day.
St Andrew's Centre has a gentle ramp with hand-rail from the street to the reception area, and a lift to the floor where the Rainbow Room is located or stairs with a hand-rail. Seating is ordinary cushioned chairs which we are happy to move to accommodate wheelchairs, and there is no need to book a spot.
If you have any accessibility questions or would like someone you can call in case you need assistance, please contact the secretary or president in advance.
