Where and when?

In September 2009 we came home to Fleet after several decades in Aldershot. We meet at the Baptist Church, Basingbourne Road, Church Crookham, Fleet, GU52 6TH. You can find us by using the map below.

Use the free car park at the back of the building. There is a door from the car park at the back of the building, but please walk back down the drive and in the front door if the hall at the back is in use. If the hall at the back is empty, you can go in the door from the car park and walk through the building to the church.

There are two disabled bays in front of the building, wheelchair accessible, and there are two disabled toilets.

Under normal circumstances we meet every Thursday during term time from 8.00pm to 10.00pm.


Since the introduction of Government Coronavirus restrictions in March 2020 the three principal language tables have been meeting on Zoom. At present there is no clear date for returning to live meetings in the hall although it is hoped this will happen by September.

Annual General Meeting

On 18th March 2021 the group's Annual General Meeting was held on Zoom. 23 members attended. Nick Keeley stood down as Chair and Mike Swaddling was appointed in his place, with Pat Humphreys and Bob Rusbridge remaining as Secretary and Treasurer respectively. After Bob had presented the accounts Mike paid tribute to Nick for his service as Chair over 26 years, particularly in certain lean times when his efforts over and above what might normally be expected of someone in the role had virtually held the group together.

Mike also commented on the obvious camaraderie within the group that had kept the three main tables going strongly via Zoom during Covid. The meeting finished with a language quiz devised by Mike which caused much scratching of heads but was much enjoyed.

We have two social evenings each year.

Under normal circumstances we have three terms a year to coincide roughly with the school calendar. As soon as the easing of restrictions allows we will be talking to the venue to arrange dates for 2021/22.
