We meet at the Friends (Quaker) Meeting House, 39, High Street, Warwick. CV34 4AX, directly opposite the magnificent Lord Leycester Hospital (left), an historic group of timber-framed buildings dating mainly from the late 14th Century and clustered round the Norman gateway into Warwick. The Meeting House has a delightful garden which adjoins the historic Warwick Castle and classes are occasionally enlivened with visits from the Castle's population of peacocks.
Warwick is readily accessible and current members travel by public transport from Coventry and Birmingham as well as from Stratford-upon-Avon and the surrounding villages. Warwick is accustomed to welcoming visitors and is well supplied with car parks.
The Meeting House boasts a delightful Quaker Community Café - presided over by Paul, the chef de cuisine - which serves a variety of locally made cakes, snacks and hot and cold lunches. We break for about 10 minutes at 11.00 a.m. for light refreshments and after meetings a number of members usually choose to have lunch in the café. The café holds a Gold Star Award for cleanliness and Healthy Eating Awards.
