Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month (September to April) at the Royal British Legion Hall, off Melrose Avenue, West Bletchley MK3 6PU (map below). There is a licensed bar and there is plenty of car parking.
The Hall opens its doors at 7.30pm and the talks seldom get under way before 8.00pm. There is a voluntary £2 per head admission fee to cover the cost of the venue hire and also speaker's expenses when needed. But the entry fee does include a raffle ticket - so it is possible to come home in profit!

NOTE: This meeting is on a TUESDAY and will be held at The Cruck Barn, Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre, Alston Drive, Bradwell Abbey, Milton Keynes MK3 6PU
Please note: the red marker indicates the correct location, down an access road. The building labelled as The Royal British Legion is NOT the venue - it has been mis-labelled.
Meetings are held at the Royal British Legion Hall, off Melrose Avenue, West Bletchley, MK3 6PU. The Hall is approached from an access driveway and is signposted to the right on a lamppost 100m from the junction with Whaddon Way.

Please note that on Google Maps the wrong hall is labelled as the British Legion Hall; follow the signpost! If you enter the postcode it will pinpoint the right building, but you will need 'earth' or 'satellite' view to make sense of it.
The Branch has adopted the Grand Union Canal between Bridges 94 and 96 including Fenny Stratford Lock. For more information and for volunteering opportunities please see page on the Fenny Adoption.
