The whole committee meets three times a year in rooms at Ampthill Baptist Church. (Any bat group member is welcome to attend. Let Jude know so that she can ensure enough cake). Various subgroups meet informally as the need arises.
Membership of the committee is by election at the AGM. Interested parties can also be co-opted during the year.
