Welwyn Hatfield


General Meetings.

Doors open at 9:45, tea and coffee are served from 10:00 to 10:30. The meeting starts at 10.30 am with notices, followed by the talk.
Meetings labelled "Hat", will take place in Breaks Manor Youth Centre, Link Drive, Hatfield, AL10 8TP. If you're online, you can click here for a map.
Meetings labelled "WGC" take place in the Ludwick Family Centre, Hall Grove, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 4PH. If you're online, you can click here for a map. There's sometimes a problem with parking for cars at Ludwick - if you don't mind a walk you could try parking in Caponfield - click here for a map.

There have been complaints from residents about the parking on the road in front of Ludwick Family Centre. If you plan to park here, please could you ensure that you 'follow the trend' and park on the same side as those cars already parked. This ensures that delivery lorries and emergency vehicles can pass through. Many thanks.

If you want to display notices on the projector, or notice boards, at the meetings, contact Tony Lammiman on 01707 884457, or E-mail him: "tony.lammiman@gmail.com".

Please note that, for health and safety reasons, we have to limit attendance at these meetings to 170
