The prime purpose of the Forum is fellowship. We currently have about thirty members, approximately two thirds men and one third ladies. We meet fortnightly in Baljaffray Church on Monday evenings from mid October to mid March. We listen to speakers on subjects of general interest. The talks last about forty five minutes followed by questions and answers. We also arrange occasional visits to places of interest. The evenings end with informal chat over tea/coffee and biscuits.
The Forum starts its new session in October, meeting on every second Monday at 7.30 p.m. in the Church.
This year’s subscription is £15 and is due at the beginning of the session. The purpose of this is to pay donations / expenses to speakers.
