RSVP. It’s really helpful to know if you plan to come – even if you ultimately can’t make it. Just helps to know how much milk to buy and how many chairs to put out!
Directions from Liverpool Street station. It’s easiest to come out via the escalator to the upper concourse and onto Bishopsgate(West), turn right, cross Bishopsgate at the pedestrian lights and go down Devonshire Row, then across Devonshire Square, which briefly becomes Cutler St. At the junction turn briefly left onto Harrow Place - you’ll see the Travelodge hotel in front of you - and immediately right into Artizan Street. The library is just past the Petticoat Tower, on your left (it’s not much of a ‘street’ now, more a narrow walkway beside an entrance to an underground car park – doesn't look very prepossessing!).
Directions from Aldgate tube. This route is slightly longer than you might expect because of building works getting in the way, however it should take no more than 10 minutes walking at a leisurely pace. Exit Aldgate station on to Aldgate High Street and turn right. Walk down the High Street, passing Itsu on your left and St Botolph's without Aldgate church on your right. Turn right as soon as you can after St Botolphs's (opposite Boots) so that you follow the perimeter of the building site around until you almost reach the back of the church. Turn left at Tesco Express into Houndsditch and then take the first right - this is Stoney Lane. The Artizan Street Library is at the end of this road, just past the Post Office and Travelodge.
If you need parking, there are a few meter spaces (card or pay by phone) in Stoney Lane or Gravel Lane – best approach via Houndsditch.
Speaker: We were due to have an investigator for the Health Service Ombudsman come, but he can't make the date now. We are trying to book another speaker!
Please note that we will also have PMRGCAuk Christmas cards available to buy at £3.75 for a pack of 10 cards.
Food & Drink: Hot drinks and a few nibbles will be made available. If you need ‘proper’ food, please bring it with you.
Cost: In order to finance the group, it would be great if those attending could donate £5 towards costs.
