The Bishopston Society’s arrangements for our next exciting public meeting, to be coupled with our 2017 Annual General Meeting, have now been finalised. Please make a diary note now: the meeting will take place on Tuesday 3rd October 2017 from 7 pm at the Friends Meeting House, 300, Gloucester Road.
