A meeting will be held on Saturday 2 May 2020, 10am-4pm, at Renfield St Stevens Centre, 260 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JP. (This is not Bank Holiday weekend due to a war anniversary.) The centre is well served by public transport. The cost will be £15. There will be much to be decided so members should bring a current project and/or show and tell.
