Monthly Meetings

Meetings, featuring expert speakers, are held on the second Monday of each month (except August) at

St John’s Church Centre, Ashley Road, Upper Parkstone, Poole, Dorset BH14 0AA

Admission (including refreshments):


See Upcoming Events (sidebar) or the Calendar for details of what is planned for the next meeting.

St John’s Church Centre is opposite Waitrose in Upper Parkstone, on the corner of Ashley & Churchill Roads.

At most meetings our sales table will be present.

Please do not arrive before 7.30 pm, to allow space and time for our stall holders to park, unpack and display their wares and for the hall to be set out. We will open the Ashley Road doors as soon as we are ready.

If travelling by car and you find the Church Car Park full, please do not double – park or obstruct emergency vehicle access. Continue along Churchill Road and turn right into Norrish Road, where there is some on-street parking after 6.00 pm (check signs before leaving vehicle) and a Pay and Display car park (charges apply until 10.00 pm).

The Church Centre is well served by buses, with the Wilts & Dorset M1 and M2 routes and Yellow Buses Routes 1b and 1c regularly leaving Bournemouth (Gervis Place) and Poole Bus Station.

Note: From September 2019, these meetings will move to St George’s Church Hall, Oakdale BH15 3EU on the 3rd Tuesday of every month (except August) from 7.30 pm – 9.30 pm. This page will be updated following the July 2019 meeting.
