Annual indoor meeting – Bucklesham Village Hall – Saturday 11th March 2017 – 10.30am onwards.

Doors will open at 10.30am for setting up, refreshments and general chat and looking at exhibits. We can then start with a few talks if there is time. Some of the group will then be lunching in a local pub close by from 12.30pm onwards.  The meeting will continue until we have run out of talks etc, possibly around 5pm.
The day’s entertainment is entirely dependent on members bringing along items of interest or being prepared to give a short/long talk. A digital projector will be available for those with digital presentations or images. If anyone would like to show ‘old style’ slides hopefully we can arrange a slide projector if needed, please let me know on this. Tables will also be provided for those with exhibits. It would be useful if you are intending on giving a presentation to let me know. Refreshments will be provided.

If you are doing a Powerpoint presentation then you should save it in OpenOffice format or if you use Microsoft Office then Office 2007 format or earlier.

Bucklesham Village Hall is not far from the Nacton A12/A14 roundabout to the east of Ipswich. From the A12/A14 roundabout take the minor exit after the A12 exit but before the A14 Felixstowe exit. This exit is signposted to Bucklesham and leads via a single track road to Bucklesham Village. At the end of this road you will reach the village, at the T junction turn right into Bucklesham Road. Take the next right turn into Levington Lane and the village hall is a short distance down the lane on the right.

A map of the location can be viewed by following this link. The OS Grid Reference for the hall is TM242417. If you need any more detailed instructions in how to get there then do get in contact with myself.


Hopefully see you there!

    Hi Neil,

    Sorry, I don’t have your email address! I hope and expect to be at the meeting on March 11th. I felt a bit guilty last year that I hadn’t put a presentation together. This year I am away for a couple of weeks at the end of Feb, so I have planned ahead and created three presentations (one short, one medium and one longish!). However, I note that you need them to be in OpenOffice. I use Mac equipment and have never heard of OpenOffice: (this is because I am virtually ignorant about computers). I prepared the images on a new MacBook Pro and have no idea if my files will open on your set-up. Any thoughts/suggestions? Perhaps I could send you a stick or pen-drive to see if you can read them? If so, I will need your address.
    I’m here for the next week: my email address is

    Best wishes,

    Tony Hopkins
