East Anglia

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)
Thetford
Norfolk
IP24 2AZ

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.
