The Society's meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Wilmot Street Community Centre. All start at 7.30pm (the December Meeting commences at 7.00pm).

(To get to the Wilmot Street Community Centre, in the centre of Heanor, turn onto Wilmot Street at the side of the Market Place , directly opposite the Market Hotel; after passing the first junction (with Mundy Street) there is a car park on your right, and the Community Centre is adjacent to that.)

You don't have to be a member of the Society to attend our meetings -
 visitors are always welcome.
Non-members are invited to contribute a donation
to the Society at their discretion.
