The Mid Somerset group now meets in the Red Brick Building (Morland Enterprise Park, Morland Road, Glastonbury. BA6 9FT. Phone: 01458 89956), a complex in Glastonbury which includes a restaurant, coffee shop and meeting areas. Afternoon talks start at 3:30 pm, on the 2nd Thursday of the month. 

As well as running an interesting programme of talks and events, members of the Group help in the Wells and Burnham-On-Sea Libraries. The library sessions provide one-to-one help, with access to world wide information at no cost. If interested please phone the Libraries for information and to book a slot.
