We meet on the Third Friday of the month at a different venue each time. The venues are chosen by members and are usually on the bus routes in the local area between Simonstone and Colne. So far we have been to: The Bistro at Shuttleworth Mead, Stork Hotel at Read, The Ace Centre in Nelson, The Ram’s head Cliviger, the Waggoners in Burnley, Towneley Garden Centre Cafe, the Bentley Wood Inn also in Burnley, Cafe Cargo in Foulridge and Shackletons near Clitheroe.

It is a very easy group to be with; a good social occasion where we have got to know each other and have plenty to talk about. See next lunch below:
