All,

I gather there are some people are still referring to this list and it's several years out of date! For future reference on the branches please see below:

http://www.card-world.co.uk/find-your-local-branch/

This list will be maintained with up to date venues and contact details.

Thanks,
Sam

Cheers for that, but surely the North-West Branch doesn't meet in Bedford? 🤔

Wondered who'd be the first to spot that....

Mainwaring jokes aside thanks for flagging! I've let Michelle know and it'll be put right asap.

Thanks for this. I've also had confirmation from Michelle that the Bedford issue has been amended!

I'd also recommend you try and get to Timperley if possible. It's a good meeting is the Cheshire Branch.

Used to go to Timperley many moons ago when John Knowles ran it from his old school, The Wellington. 
Sunday afternoon's not the best for me these days and noticed the North West one is on a Friday. 
You used to have to be introduced at Timp before becoming a member, does anyone know if that's still the case there and indeed at the other venues?

No it isn't the case, it's a CSGB branch now and isn't run in the same way. Sometimes branches charge a 50p or £1 visitor fee but you can walk into any of them.
