Please note! 'Meet-ups' and 'Get togethers' are exactly that - they are an informal way of getting TSG members to meet each other.
'Meet ups' take place to view exhibitions or specific events and 'Get togethers' take place at a TSG members house (usually on a Saturday) and involve 'show 'n' tell', helping each other, and lots of friendship and
fun! 'Meet-ups'are usually free - except for admission charges where applicable. For' Get togethers', members normally bring a plate, i.e. a food dish - usually dessert...

All TSG members are always welcome - just let Linda know if you wish to come along and she will give you the details.
