We are a very friendly group of women who meet on the second Tuesday of the month  at 7.30pm (usually) at The Ipswich & Suffolk Club, Northgate Street, Ipswich IP1 3BE;  we also have meetings via Zoom during some of the winter months or when a speaker is not local to us. Please contact us for more details
