Facilities: Refreshments are available at the meeting. We also have a comprehensive library, where members can borrow books about various cacti and succulents for a small fee. The venue has disabled toilets.

Look for a large thatched building on the left (Paul Pender Funerals). Take the second left onto Bidford Road (Community College is signed). Continue along Bidford Road to a T Junction turn left onto Kingsway North. The college entrance is first on the right.  There are several carparks, the closest are carparks 1 and 3.
