Where and when?

Where we meet

For the 2024/25 season we will continue to hold live talks in St Andrew's Church Hall, Leny Road, Callander, FK17 8AL.
The majority of meetings will be on the second Thursday of the month, starting at 7.30.
Suggested donation held at £3 to encourage a wide attendance.
All talks will be followed by tea, coffee and biscuits so stay for a chat.

The Hall is part of the Church building, entrance on the right.


St Andrew's Church is at 8-10 Leny Rd, Callander FK17 8BA.
It is set back off the main A84 road just west of, and on the same side as, the Tesco Express store, next to The Old Rectory Hotel.
It has metal railings on top of a low wall and iron gates which are propped open.

There is parking outside of the Church, please park in there (considerately) as the main road has double yellow lines.

At this year’s AGM our Chair, Kevin Duffy stepped down after 13 years. Two new members were elected to Committee and the current Secretary, Treasurer and Committee member were re-elected.
So we have a strong Committee bout are still looking for a Chair to take the lead.
In the interim we would also like to have a few volunteers to host the live talks meetings; lead the recent sightings, introduce the speaker and close the meeting – just get in touch

Fund-raising stalls

We will be holding our annual fund-raiser in Ancaster Square, Callander from 10-4 on Saturday 20 July. Hardy and indoor plant sales plus a Tombola/Bric-a-brac stall.
Your help on the day, donations or at least spending money with us is needed to make it a success.
