We currently meet the 2nd week of each month on Saturday at 10am, the Old Custom House in Bideford.

 This is a core meeting which will include TCG councillors feeding back and updating on what they have been doing and also where the wider group can share ideas and support and plan how we can move forward together. This is  ideal for new people to come along and get a feel of what is happening and join a hub in the process (when you are struck by how bloody marvellous we all are!)

On the fourth week of each month, each of the hubs hold their own meetings and get on with what work they have at hand.
