Thursday Forum is due to start again on 7th October 2021 onwards. 

After an enforced break of 18 months, Thursday Forum is starting up again! With extra Covid precautions and a few other alterations you should soon be able to look forward to the familiar delicious three-course meal (or snack) followed by time to chat and then a talk or other entertainment.  Food will be served 12.00 - 12.45; and the talk 1.15 - 1.45, all in the Christ Church Hall. Make your way to the back of the church building; it is the large red-brick building behind.

 We hope we can re-create the friendly, informal atmosphere of before, and still offer a good meal, followed by some form of entertainment, but keeping in mind the Covid precautions.

It will run from 7th October till 16th December, then from 6th January until the end of May with a break for Easter.  The overall timing will be the same, but food will not be served after 12.45pm, giving time to clear away and chat to people before the talk starts at 1.15pm.  We’ll stay in the same room, the Christ Church Hall  (better for our heating bills and the environment too).

We’ll definitely have a three-course meal every other week, but it may be more restricted the other weeks.  But there will be food, fellowship and stimulation every week.   We are restricted to 40 people in the hall at the moment, but please don’t refrain from coming unless you know there is a danger of exceeding this limit.
