Consett Men's Forum

The club was formed in 1971 under the auspices of Consett Rotary Club and has proved to be popular ever since. Currently we have an attendance of around 40 members. The Forum meets in the Consett Methodist Church Hall most Tuesday mornings from September to April. Meetings commence at 10am for tea/coffee, biscuits and good conversation. This is followed at 10.30 by a talk. As can be seen from the programme below, these cover a wide range of subjects and interests. The talks are followed by a question and answer session and meetings terminate by 12.00. There is a suggested donation of £1.50 to help cover expenses. Visitors are very welcome to sample before you join!
