1995 meetings and the 1996 AGM were held at the Australian Bar.After that new venues were tried for a while, the Queen's Head for February, then the Queen's Tavern in March and the Prince's Hotel for the rest of 1996. The AGM for 1997 was back at the Queens Tavern. Due to a financial crisis, most of the year's meetings were informal and held at the Tap & Spile on the canal. The exception was the April meeting with Jonathan Wylie at the Prince's Hotel. The 1998 AGM was still at the Tap & Spile. After that we moved to Bennett's bar from February to April. Christmas parties were mostly held at the Samson & Lion.
