22nd Feb 2018:  AGM announced for Saturday 28th April at 12:30pm
At our normal venue, The Old King's Head pub just off Borough High Street, near London Bridge station, in the upstairs room. Our chairman John Repsch will be introducing our Special Guest, Edward Taylor, the phenomenally successful ex-BBC producer, playwright and light-entertainment script editor; Spare a Copper, Does the Team Think?, The Men from the Ministry.

All are welcome; new members, non-members, those wishing to become members, those who aren't sure they want to be members because they can't make their minds up, those who can't decide what they want to be, and anyone else who fancies a bit of a laugh at the expense of others. See you there.
