During the autumn and winter months we meet for lectures and conviviality. We have an annual visit to another town to learn from their guided walks, as well as a lunch for members and friends. We are a voluntary organisation: our income is used to promote the Guild and to fund our insurance. Our officers are elected on a rotational system.
