The Cotswold branch is one of the longest established branches of the OMRS. Based in Cheltenham near the M5, we serve a wide geographic area that extends as far east as Oxford, north to Birmingham, west to Hereford and Wales and south to the M4 corridor and Bristol.
As well as a regular programme of monthly meetings, we have an active programme of visits to museums and military and historical establishments that further our knowledge of medals, medal-related events. We also hold a biannual Mini-Convention that includes members displays and a programme of speakers.
Meetings are held at Swindon Village Hall, Church Road, Swindon Village, Cheltenham, GL51 9QS and commence at 7.00pm for 7.30pm every second Thursday in the month except August. Guests are welcome, please contact us for details.
