Happy new year and details of our first meeting of 2020

Happy new year!

A very happy new year to you dear rebel. I hope we can all have a happy and healthy 2020 together. We’ll certainly persevere with whatever the year brings.

Our first 2020 meeting

If you’re feeling despair about the world right now, and you need some recharge, our first XR Stroud meeting will be on Wednesday 8th January at the Old Convent. Here’s how to find us if you’ve not attended before. As always we’ll have a shared meal at 6:30pm for a 7pm start.

The start of a new year offers so many opportunities for what we can achieve together as a group. Please come along and meet us if it’s your first time, or return to us dear rebel (we’d be over the moon to see you again).
