The GAF Programme

We hold six meetings a year usually on the evening of the first Thursday of the month in January, March, May, July, September and November. The first 5 meetings consist of a discussion or talk about a topic that members have suggested would be of interest to them followed by a break for coffee and tea. After the break there is a business meeting. The meeting in November is our Annual General Meeting. Everyone who is a plotholder in Glasgow can come along to our meetings.
