Starting from the September 2011 the Warrington Group will be meeting at the Halliwell Jones Rugby Stadium, opposite Tesco Supermarket on Winwick Road, access is through the main entrance. The meetings will start half an hour earlier at 7.00 p.m., because the rooms have to be vacated by 9.00 p.m.. The room will be open from 6.30 p.m.. and is on the first floor in the Education, Training and Development Room, just past the Dining Room. There is a lift available if required. We have been requested to park at the west end opposite the car park entrance next to the hedge, so as not to interfere with Tesco's shoppers Hoping this will not be inconvenient to anybody, but if you have any problems with these arrangements or comments please contact a member of the committee.
