Welcome to the East Anglia Branch of the OMRS. Anyone living in or visiting the East Anglia area (Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex) can be assured of a warm welcome. We only launched in late 2013, to fill a large geographical gap in the OMRS map, and are still gathering pace, with a stalwart core of members.
We are currently meeting on the second Sunday of each second month, in the Sergeant Wilson Room, at:
The Bell Inn,
King Street (also on Bridge Street)
We gather to start at 11.00 prompt, with the committee business devoted to the first hour, followed by a break for lunch and to socialise, and to recommence at 13.00 with a speaker and/or presentations.
