London Irish LGBT Network Open Meeting and Social - August 23rd

The London Irish LGBT Network are hosting an open meeting for people to come along and help us plan our activities and projects for the next 12 months. We're also hoping that some people might like to take on some of the tasks involved in putting on these events too.

This will be on Tuesday August 23rd at 7pm in the Camden LGBT Forum Offices on 54 Chalton Street, NW1 1HS (close to Kings Cross/St Pancras).

We'll then be popping to the pub next door afterwards for a few sociables.

Can you let us know if you'll be able to come along so I can make sure I've enough milk for the tea :)




Looking forward to seeing you then,

Best wishes,

Cecily Maher
Committee Member
